death came
as half a human

The play takes place in an installation

that resembles a uterus

with a red liquid that represents the umbilical chord

to drip through a tube onto Oedipus.

Although Jocasta had recognised her son,

she did nothing to prevent the act of incest,

while Oedipus wanted to return to the darkness of the womb.

The installation is shrinking

and enclosing them in the blood.

As we grow older, the distance from the womb increases;

and this fear of separation is called 'the fear of death'.
