Grey Area – Premiere

Four women in a gray zone face the remnants of quarantine. The constant obsession with the body; the uploads-emptiness-actions-stop. Exposed on a 360-degree stage each angle is watched, observed and criticized. There is nowhere to escape. Alliance house allow imagination, ideas and hope to sink. An alternative structure of a home is created in which actions, obsessions, repetitiveness, all done outwardly. Like if it was demanding to be looked at, demanding sympathy and approval for success. Does an action exist if it isn’t presented publicly? Is it worth anything without a post on social media?
