A man lives in the city.
He sits, he lies, he stands, he calls.
He thinks, he talks, he imagines.
He is restless.
TOM is a portrait of a man in a city, and is an ode to the art of looking.
The performance stimulates the viewer to let go of his rational view and his own structured life and viewing codes. In this crossover, theater, visual art and sound blend into and reinforce each other.
TOM shows the intimacy and intensity of two male bodies in a refined and seemingly simple imagery.
