Third part of Giacomo Ravicchio's work inspired by the elements earth, air, water and fire.
"All good things come in threes, as the cliché goes. But how often does a theatre undertake such an ambitious project as this - three performances about the four elements, intertwined with man's search for his roots and his identity - and be able to carry it off in such a consistently powerful and captivating way?"
Henrik Lyding, Jyllands-Posten
This "visual storm" focuses on fire as cleansing element; as a means to forgiveness and atonement, and maybe as a way back to the real self.
News photographer Emil Jensen teaches a group of inmates in a Danish prison. Here he meets Nuka, a young Greenlander sentenced to life imprisonment. Nuka is finding it difficult to adjust to Danish prison life and wishes only for his father's forgiveness, even though he knows this is impossible. Emil has to travel to Greenland and promises to visit Nuka's father. This becomes a spiritual journey to the borderlands between dream and reality; a journey where Emil crosses paths with his own past.
