Two women are sitting in front of a door in a delimited room, defined by a rear wall and the invisible wall towards the audience. The room is filled with a large number of small stools and crows.
The door provides an ambivalent impression of being both locked in, not able to come out, and being shut out, not able to get in. The 20 crows are sitting as spectators on top of the rear wall. The location of crows, just in this “gray” area between the outside and inside, enhances the experience of a spatial ambiguity or ambivalence.

The women may initially look like twins with identical costumes, one fair and one dark - or are they a divided self, as two sides of one person?
In the middle of the show the two women are sitting close to the door, with their backs toward us, naked and vulnerable, yet strong and muscular. The one turns and looks at us. We can hear: “remember me - remember me” (Purcell - "Dido's Lament"). It is as if she asks to be remembered or that we remember!

The performance, the space with its ambivalence, ending as it started, can be interpreted as a
an intermediate or in-between space - between the actual and the perceived;
We create our own memories, reality and history. What we choose to remember - or to forget and repress. Our collective amnesia - all stories and tragedies we are trying to keep closed behind a door.
