DESIDERIUM

About the performance

A reminder before it happens: We should respect the limits, trust and accept the facts.

Sometimes we move beyond need.

Freedom is merely an absurdity.

It is a longing, a dream, in which we lose ourselves.

Indeed, self-control is our only option.

We are all here right before it happens. The problem is that freedom is still here as well, so how can we deny it?
