Manipulation and other Romantic Stories.jpg


While social norms still cover manipulative and violent actions stemming from patriarchal motives under the guise of “love”, sarcasm and irrationality are illuminated through the relationship of a couple and their psychologist in a futuristic universe, examining new ways of expression and exploring topics with a sardonic slant, electronic compositions, hilarious polyphonic songs

and contemporary performative elements.
