a theater piece that is designed to break barriers in art and technology. It simultaneously draws on ancient oral texts and the internet, as a metaphorical referece to the modern condition. Its theme is isolation, and our intent is to remove the barrier between subject and object. It is, in essence, a love story, told through stereoscopic screens, virtual reality, floor sensors, and other new media technologies.
