A princess, who’s been locked away in a tower, has to wait until “freed” by her prince charming. 

What sets her apart, is her will to refute all she’s ever been told: 

Can one be enough to oneself ? 

 

Growing up alone, the princess is unwittingly caught between her childhood and womanhood. 

 

After spending years on top of overlapping endless stones;

Her greatest wonder: the earth, her greatest dream: to feel it beneath her feet. 

 

Her desire to feel the ground awakened her everlasting sleeping, existential agony. 

 

Once's poetic integrity, consists of performative motifs such as; time, loneliness, desire, indecision, doubt and self.
