Five people are stranded in an empty room and can't escape it – except by singing. Who threw them into the empty space, where do they want to go? What is the purpose of this in-between realm in which they have landed and which they inhabit together with the viewers?

Together with the free-roaming gaze of the audience, these homeless creatures discover the strange space and try to wrest some magic from the desolate surroundings, with spatial sound and song. They explore the space and the "last songs", like archaeologists searching a ruin for meaningful signs, or like children who have climbed into an abandoned building and begin to play there.

The result is a musical Robinsonade for five solitudes, a mixture of Samuel Beckett's absurd playing principles and Luis Buñuel's "El ángel exterminador", in which an evening party inexplicably cannot leave a ballroom, even though no one physically prevents them from doing so.
