Very few people know what happens within themselves, why they have certain feelings, why they suddenly feel unhappy or content with themselves, why they go through periods of depression, etc. Arena is a Physical Theatre production focused on the questions we carry with us.
The debacle of not just loving someone else but, coming to love who you are, is one of the primary focuses of the play. Issues such as Betrayal, Lust, Loss, Freedom and Happiness are also explored and expressed through the history of each performer and expressed through dance.
