The Duck has no choice and leaves home. The Duck arrives at a corporation. The Duck needs tp be productive. The Duck falls in love with a singer. The Duck has a voice. The Duck doesn’t have the courage to sing. The Duck sabotages herself. The Duck goes to parties in the bat cave. The Duck abandons herself. The Duck sinks and freezes. The Duck starts building, unsure. The Duck makes a friend. The Duck chooses. The Duck takes flight.

Only that it’s not about ducks, it’s about people and growing up – knowing you can choose.

“I want to talk about how we find the strength to build our own narrative. Without staying captive in the small cosmos we call family and without us trying repeatedly to escape it.” (Cleopatra Constantinescu – playwright)
