The story is set in the late 1950s in America and the characters are representatives of the beat generation – young and talented people with a restless heart, boiling in a sea of apparent calmness installed by the government. Women tired of being perfect housewives in perfect match-box houses. Men with a thirst for adventure on the road, be it of concrete or spiritual deliverance. As paint traces lines invisible to an untrained eye, so do light and darkness form shadows and illusions in our lives.
Follow the painter and his muses as they play with paint and hallucinations caused by drugs and alcohol, and enter a mesmerising world that brings new media in contact with art and traditional theatre.
