A woman finds herself in a room she has never seen before, one that is entirely unknown to her.

She sits at her table, on her chair, but not in her room.

She can't fathom how she got here, into this strange room without view and exit.
Despite all her confusion, she tries to comprehend some sort of logic and the very own regularities and characteristics of this place, which appears to be a being on its own.

In this room, quite obviously something is going on, maybe something of grave significance.

In 2003, Iris Meinhardt, Michael Krauss and Thorsten Meinhardt, founded the company Meinhardt & Krauss. Their performances are not easy, characterized by their uniqueness and for a great technical and aesthetic care, moving between theatre, cinema, new technologies and original music composition. Their productions have been presented at various international festivals and they have won several awards.

Iris Meinhardt studied puppetry at the University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart. Three years before graduating, she premiered internationally the show "Bing", a solo of 20 minutes with projections and text by Samuel Beckett, affirming herself soon as a new and distinct voice in the contemporary puppet theatre, by combining singular choreographic and cinematographic elements, among other characteristics.
