Description: A character appears in a dark empty. He comes to the foreground, agitated, as embarrassed by his clothes. Then, a chair appears. A first object with which the subject can make contact with it. Here begin a strange history of lonely body, isolated and independent, grappling with their inner compulsions and an enigmatic territory with kind of actor-object: here, a chair, a door, a coat rack, a sink…Each character is a specific compulsions personified (checking, washing, scratching, etc…) invading a space becoming more limited and constrained. A strange machine is set up with repetitive movements, absurd and increasingly frightening
