"From Innocence to Innocence" is an experimental fusion of theater, poetic script, contemporary dance, Albanian folk elements, and meditation/manifestation. It explores the protagonist’s struggle touching on emigration and homeland, identity and gender, and the perpetual struggle to safeguard the purity of one's consciousness amidst life's relentless onslaught of experiences. The original script blends poetry from Albanian legends and poetry with global voices in literature, music and philosophy, offering a personal, local, and universal exploration of culture and consciousness.
