In Storm End Come the performers embark on a journey of fluid and unpredictable mental states that lead them to encounters and interactions in changing environments. In this volatile atmosphere‚ the work reveals a world that looks at the assumption of the “self” as if it were challenged by a basic fear of not existing and turning into someone else‚ alongside the attraction and the alarm raised at the same time by the possibility of transformation.
