Alternative micro-theatre play written and directed by Freya Treutmann, 5475 Scratches performance is based on the character of Sisyphus from Greek Mythology and explores the question of how our identity is shaped by our habits, our way of living. What happens if you suddenly lose a part of your identity you used to hate? The performance plays with a circularity of movement and repetition of rhythmic text, showing the ambiguity of a need for a routine and hate about not being able to make choices.
