In 2014, 3 billion people were using the Internet and the mobile-cellular market. Since last decade computers and mobiles are relentlessly altering and crumbling our perception of social reality and present time. Nevertheless it’s the unexpected email Adam gets from his cousin Kevin inviting him to join his secret venture in New York City, to trigger the chain of events that will lead him to restore his own lost reality. A random incident in Central Park that makes him lose every natural and artificial connections to the surrounding world, will be nothing but the first stage of a self-discovery through the darkness of memory. Yet, only the verses of Amy, the enigmatic poetess of Central Park, will eventually enlighten the path of his quest with the colored Flames of a Vision that once split two lives, and now is about to reunite them in the cleansing whiteness of a stocking cap.

A multimedianic blend of theatre, fiction, videoart and literature.
Recluse in a remote hut on the edge of time, an unknown cenobite tries to decipher the echoes of humankind memory, torn between true stories and fictitious images, looking for the debris of his own soul.
When dates and units of measurement cease to have any meaning; when between memories and hallucinations new bonds of blood arise; when the simulacra eat pieces of truth torn from the images; when the perception of the ego is just a sob of boredom among the swarm of collective time; when the intuitions of the future fall into the silence of a prophecy in a vegetative state; when the transcription of the newspaper is indistinguishable from an accident report; when the soliloquy is one of the many disguises of the interior anarchy; all that still claims to be (by being recalled) fluctuates in the iridescence of the Iconosphere .
