About the performance

S.o.l.o. is the story of Simon-James. A story that he wants to share with the world for a moment, to show people what obstacles came his way. And how a wonderful future lies ahead for everyone, for those who will persevere, try and will not give up.

The performance shows three stories. Animations on a canvas, the reality on stage and the story that the viewer creates with what they see.

Each chapter of the performance is a reference to the performances in which Simon-James played. And who, like a time capsule, hold a part of him that really lives in that time. S.o.l.o. opens this time capsule and allows all emotions, experiences and lessons learned on stage, so that the audience can find themselves in it too.

The emotions that we have all felt, instances that have changed our path and opportunities won or lost that have created the person we are today.
