The Shadow in the Shop Window
December 15 @ 20:00 - 22:00
A socially and emotionally incomplete person.
An underdeveloped individual.
Lonely and excluded from social reality and people, he appears like a shadow behind the window of a department store where he works.
He is a frightened creature who cannot bear to look people deep in the eyes, let alone touch them and understand them to develop any relationship with them.
His movements are awkward, abrupt, and peculiar.
He is a strange person.
At least, that’s how others perceive him.
The woman who hired him at the department store as a decorator makes him the center of attention, observing his every move.
At the moment of his creative engagement with lifeless plastic dolls, his perception of people, and his behavior when she offers to become a living presence among his dolls. Is he a decorator, or does he ultimately transform into an artist?
His incomplete self gradually liberates itself, while the doll ultimately becomes the driving force for him to realize many bitter truths about people and himself.
Dramatic processing from the collection of short stories by Dimitra Mitra, In the glory of the homeland.
