Secret Plan

“I wish I had someone I could trust …. it is relatively easy to trust someone when you  can observe him at the same time…. but I can trust only me and my burrow .” (Franz Kafka , The Burrow)

The solo is based on the text of Franz Kafka ” the Burrow ” .
The desire for security .
The paranoia an overlooked , hidden danger could lurk somewhere.
The hope to take the complete control.
The utopia to create the perfect home.
