INITIATION is the action of beginning something. The solo piece begins in a quiet atmosphere where the narrator initiates the audience to her reality. In a world where human and natural disasters constantly happen, the human beings are challenged to adjust and push the limits.

In our society, the concept of success often represents the running for gold and the loss of moral values. Despite all, some people fight diseases and are lead to healing. Some others cross borders with the hope to find a better life. This quest of success creates stories and encourages human beings to journey on…


INITIATION aims to lead the audience to a mysterious journey. A "voyage" which may initiate them to a change.
