The story of Pelléas and Mélisande is for those who have felt or are feeling that they are running out of air next to someone. For those who want to leave the castle from which Mélisande could not leave.

Strange talking creatures, with a numb body that has to be constantly held or carried. The characters in Maeterlinck's symbolist drama are sick or dead, and those who are alive are only shadows of themselves, in a castle where time does not pass and the sun never shines.

The characters go round and round without realising it. Everything is a repetition of something that has already happened to them. And they die. Perhaps if they could recognise the repetition, they could avoid it. But there's a fog that prevents them from seeing what's happening to them. My fog wouldn't let me either. I started wondering how this whole fog thing worked. Who puts it there? My lover, my mother, my friends? Or is it possible that I put fog in front of my own eyes?
