Silent Tales is a performance that gives insight into the invisible part of human nature.
It contains of six stories, each titled as a chapter in a visual-dance book, accompanied by the music of Sebastijan Duh and light design by Borut Bučinel, erasing the border between fantasy and reality.
The body is vulnerable and turned to itself, torn between emotional and physical states.
