"An inquiry into what is already felt but not yet visible. A performative exploration striving to excavate how experiences, reality and imagination of otherness manifest in the physical. Embracing provocations of the Xenofeminist manifesto, it offers an invitation to imagine a realm for multitude – a speculative future."
