A dreamy past, a chaotic present and the despair caused by an unknown future – Last Work is set in time. In a capsule containing history abridged, beauty and tenderness try to survive against power games. Bodies find ways of escape from a reality that is increasingly chaotic, violent, and meaningless, and offer a simple truth, compassion and comfort. Hovering above it all, like a ticking time bomb, is the repetitive motion of an effort that does not translate into pleasure – an on-the-spot race as a reminder of the SiOnsyphean nature of existence. Last Work takes place in the twilight zone, where sweet reverie meets nightmarish awakening and where one must choose: to surrender in the hope of rebirth or to be abandoned to the abyss of oblivion?
