The show follows the story of Emma, an ambitious corporate woman at the top of her game, who excels at every aspect of her life. However, things change when the rise of a mysterious epidemic begins to ravage the world and the memories of her past.
Ellipsis is a piece that stresses the importance of emotions in modern day interactions. This includes the notable societal pressure to follow the norm and the strong desire to appear "perfect". The plot is influenced by the 1980's AIDS epidemic and its effect on people living in metropolitan areas, as a way to explore society's apathy and indifference over the life of others. In the story the main source of positive emotions is shown through music as the main character reminisces her cherished piano she used to play with her dad.
The play proposes that Emma is losing those emotions that characterize us as humans as she continues to be immersed in a vicious modern world.
Ellipsis is a new writing piece by Polish writer Ula Moroz.
