I stand at the edge of the river

Duration: 45 min

Ophelia, neglected by everybody whom she trusted, betrayed, demeaned and exploited, stands at the edge of the river and fully expresses – in a manner that is full of dissent towards a further existence – her refusal to accept the double order violently imposed on her by her father and by love, both of which limited her and steered her. What will Ophelia finally see when she looks at the still water surface, standing at the edge, waiting for her turn? Medusa’s smile, a terrorist attack, the orange life-jacket belonging to some refugee…? What final expression will her fury have?
