    The waiting, as divergence from a delimited horizon of expectations but also as a cancellation, constitutes the basic questioning of "Waiting". Two persons seem to wait for anything and they apply to their anxienty/ indifference a different structure of patience: the woman reacts quite mechanically and she’ s suffering, she’ s full of stress and passion, whereas the man’ s reaction is pathetic and overdriven by an exhausting mysticism. Between the two of them, lies the immaculate gap of all applied communication techniques and dexterities.

    The ostensible communicational intercourse of the two central characters will never take place, as the logic of waiting has reversed the levelling of expectation and reversely. The solution, as at least it will be presented in the imaginary level of the two persons, will be absolute and unexpected, interrupting not only the process of the waiting but of the development, too.

    Music holds a descriptive role, trying to elect the non synergy of the two characters. The two elements, as the melodiousness and the brutal metronomic rhythm, should be converged into a single form. Using the deconstruction according to the big tradition of ‘dub’ music, it is searched if finally this is feasible. Through the pattern ‘whole - abstraction – solution’, the spectator is imported violently in the waiting and he is called to identify the two characters with the two basically elements of the musical part.
