A prison represents a powerful sentence of punishment and a forced limitation of freedom. Totalitarian regimes have used this establishment to subjugate free speech through intimidation and torture. How can such an experience affect the perception one has on its body, movements, and reactions. As a dancer, Bassam Abou Diab, attempts to embody the reaction of inhuman practices, leading to a world of fantasy, allowing the body to transcend into the supernatural. Dancing and dreaming in order to survive the pain.
