A performance of four solitary presences, four strangers, four independent humans in search of a corner where they could establish their solitude; in search of the ideal fringed space where they could exist alone, self-reliant, peaceful, composed, undistracted spectators of themselves and the world that surrounds them.
‘What is necessary after all, is only this: solitude, vast inner solitude. To walk inside yourself and meet no one for hours — that is what you must be able to attain. To be solitary as you were, when you were a child, when the grown-ups walked around involved with matters that seemed large and important because they looked so busy and because you didn’t understand a thing about what they were doing.’
