Chaim Gebber Open Scene zu GAST im Acud Theater
We seek to transcend, to expande, to be more than we are just now.
We are fighting to go beyond our limited state of ego to expand our own consciousness.
We don´t want to be caught in the limited perspective of body and ego.
We seek to transcend the materia and at every very moment to upgrade ourselves within ourselves.
This diving into ourselves is very scare. It´s like a self canibalism feeding from your own flesh to grow stronger.
It is a silent long way without an ending. It only goes..
