It’s a dark night, the wind whistles and it’s freezing cold. The news reports a wave of cold, snow and rain. There´s no way to leave the house. A woman is bored and upset. As she heats up her coffee, she becomes self-absorbed looking out the window. Caught up in her thoughts, she begins to draw on the condensation on the window with her index finger. The window changes colour. Among the dark-blue shadows of the night, the silhouette of a girl dancing delicately comes into view.
The wind whistles louder and turns into a sweet symphony of wind instruments. A beautiful universe of fish and crabs, surrounded by a forest of anemones and strange plants. In and out, we are seen, we can play and imagine. The moment holds a mirror, do we have to courage to look into it?
