    When F and T had to move together during the first lockdown into the living room of their teacher’s apartments, they didn’t know that the clear boundaries that their friendship held suddenly would begin to blur when they started to play cross-dressing with each other. Something new emerged, or someone new… Tana. ‘Who am I falling in love with? What am I falling in love with?’

    A play about boundaries, identity, and sexuality in a queer- Asian context.

    Based on a true story, this play aims to establish a dialogue with the spectator about the possibilities of being and how fluctuating relationships are under the magnifying glass of habits. What defines us as identity and at the same time how many identities we inhabit are some of the questions that cross our protagonists during the two months they lived confined to the living room of a studio apartment that their course director lent them during the lockdown.

    With a surrealist tone, the narrative is divided between everyday life and dreams, opening F's inner universe to the viewer's eyes, and will make visible the ghost of that teacher who unwittingly affects the way in which T previously developed his identity.
