DESCRIPTION OF THE PERFORMANCE:
I am the promise of adventure, an exciting journey into the unknown. You don’t know what awaits you. Get away from the grey reality and sail with me to a better place, where it is more pleasant, where you can and feel more. Relax. Don't worry about anything. I will make your innermost dreams come true. What do you want? Relief? Freedom? Strength? I'll give you all of that, just grab me, squeeze me, take me home with you. Let's lose ourselves together. Cin cin! For love! For us!
