BECAUSE IT ISN'T GOING TO COME TO A BEGINNING
“[…] This Australian-born, Berlin-based [choreographer] has dedicated her work […] to exploring the phenomenon of suspending disbelief in literature and film. Audiences accept fiction with illogical or impossible-seeming plots because they want to be entertained. Wright’s approach to playing with illusion uses plenty of comedy and slapstick.

In the meantime the question is: What should be told? Is it possible at all to tell one thing in different ways? Or have I spoken too soon? Already written two different stories?
