In the heart of Jerusalem, a city of stone, in front of the theater, a ship is sinking. Her colorful sails are falling apart, and the lights on her deck are still lit.
In the time being, it’s still possible to climb onto her, to look across from all sides, to search for a lighthouse, or just some light at the end of another tunnel. Whoever might sit on the steps inside the ship can look at the theater from outside and become, for just a moment, part of the play, can imagine that they too are sinking. Or perhaps, it’s possible to just hang. Chat. Pass the time. Think. Ponder. Listen to music. Have a drink. Float.
In the end, it’s a matter of choice: either sit on the sidelines, uninvolved and wait for the ship to sink, perish, dive into the depths or – perhaps – take action: repair, build, navigate towards a new horizon and set sail as far as possible…
