Solo touches on self-forming internal paradoxes through which, fearing to discover any of our layers, we get lost. It is an attempt to expose your hopelessness, pull it out and present it to the audience. A moment of consent, freedom, reflection and pushing boundaries.

It is an introspective, but very communicative work, showing the looped attempts to undertake various actions and fail. The dancer does not spare the body, hitting the floor hard with subsequent falls, and with persistent, if not downright desperation, strives to exceed what she considers her hopelessness. The study strongly absorbs the audience into its inner world and does not allow indifference to the dancing effort.
