“Return” is a story based on a human being’s mythical thinking about trust and doubt that take over in the moment when faith into yourself and confidence is not strong enough. The starting point is the chance to return. The performance is a collaboration together with the musical union “Kaktiņš Stūrītis”. The impulse of the performance can be found in the ancient greek myth about Ororpheus und Eurydike.
