Inspired by the play of Jean Paul Sartre “The Condemned of Altona”, the four artists attempt a reapproach, each with her own art and technique, to the fluidity of time and the irrationality of nationalism within this fluidity.Taking the image of crabs as judges of Nazi Germany, Kakaliagou, Manta, and Philippou extended the idea of responsibility, to all mankind, from then until now and produced a performance where all three arts are complementary and equal.
