"Explosion" is a labyrinth of stories depicting average, little people who live in their solitary worlds. They collapse under the pressures of the distorted outside world, political intrigues and fraud, making them feel desolated, impoverished and lost.

People collapse under the weight of thoughtlessness, suppressed desires, slander, shame, fear, jealousy and boredom.

The performance offers a critical view of the world we function in, the world we live in and the dangers that lie in wait. It was made as work in progress and was presented in miniatures.
