Kane adapts and directs the
classical story Phaedra by Seneca.
Have you ever thought, thought
your heart would break? Wished you could cut open your
chest tear it out to stop the pain? Why donīt you riot like everyone
else/ I donīt care Lifeīs
too long You
can have any man you want/ I want him/ except him Always suspected the world
didnīt smell of fresh paint and flower/ smells of piss
and human sweat If
there could have been more moments like this
