A metaphor for life. Birth is nothing more than a shipwreck that casts you off on the lonely island of your destiny. Waste reaches the island by sea. This plastic, cardboard, platforms, ropes... generates an aesthetic composition and a visual environment that surrounds the protagonist. Crusoe engages in a relationship with real and imaginary beings. His life consists of what his mind can interpret in a transformed reality. A multi-instrumental musician will provide the sound that envelopes Crusoe. Things happen with the same naturalness as they happen in life: surprising sometimes, inconvenient other times, but almost always teaching you how to live with them. From a lonely island, with a flavour of the sea, Crusoe will see ships and time sail by without stopping. Crusoe, accompanied by an imaginary Friday, finally learns to live a peaceful life. A life that, like a ship on the high seas, sails by in the distance.
