You're in a room that you'll never leave for your whole life. In this room you see a performance. This performance is your performance. The room is your brain. A greyish chunk of 1,3 kilogram, crossed by billions of nerves that make us talk, think, write, make decisions, play and fall in love.
Universal Export is a piece about the brain and it's exploration. The theatre space becomes itself the darkroom of our reality. We can watch it as spectators but it watches back to us, too. Universal Export is the story of my, your, our nerves.
