For this piece, we asked ourselves if we were able to know where somebody starts or ends ?
And if the answer is yes, then where should we cut in order to pin it down?

We thus started by analysing what brings us together : a history, a gender, the others, our time.
This question of bonds is a hot issue, maybe even a political one.

So perhaps this is the good news in all this context of disaster. The complete failure of the self-centered manly individual, which brings forth ideas of solidarity, frailty, inter-dependance, of bursting one’s limits.
