Three Stage Happenings

Why does Man seek freedom?

Happening 1. The freedom to choose one's name, religion, race and sex.

A pregnant woman is torn by regret. She pleads not to give birth to this baby girl who is bound to become, like her mother, a slave in whose world the sun never rises. The story of the mother and her baby is told disjointedly, trapped inside a mechanism of social conventions.

Happening 2. The freedom to use the treasures of natural resources.

A young girl steals the Fire out of recognition that it belongs to the people. She suffers the consequences. Attendants of a lavish aristocratic soirée are made at once attracted and disdainful by the girl’s audacity. It is after all their fire.

Happening 3. The freedom to express a political opinion.

She has gone missing. A woman suspected of having helped her escape is interrogated by the regime. A group of rebels declares her as the leader of the Resistance. A girl is convinced that she is her mother. She joins the search. Does she even exist? And

                        How close to the sun can a butterfly be before she burns?
