DEEP FANTASEA is a recreated fantasy of life deep beneath the surface of the sea. The piece is about imagination as action, as life force and at the same time as rest, perhaps even as a longing for death. DEEP FANTASEA is a living installation where different artists meet and together create an organism, a living performance: a fantasy.
