‘SONNET WITHOUT A TITLE’ is the project which was a sort of spiritual necessity for us. But on a much higher level than it is usual for artistic creation. Lives have changed to all of us for the past several years. Many things happened, many things are not what they used to be, and something and someone couldn’t even be recognized any more. Many people are not with us anymore. All those changes probably influenced us and our lives. How they affected and what they caused to us could often be most easily seen through our relation with someone else, our living together with the other. Because even we are not what we used to be. We changed, too. We became different, too.
‘SONNET WITHOUT A TITLE’ is the story about two people at the beginning of the 20th century, two ordinary people in love with each other, who have difficulties in finding reasons and possibilities for further living together. This is the story about estrangement and hopelessness, about frustration, about inevitability and closed circle, about past and future, about us, about you, about them, about everyone.
