Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imagi- nary world -- the world of Quidam -- where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul. Quidam : a nameless passer-by, a solitary figure lingering on a street corner, a person rushing past and swallowed by the crowd. It could be anyone, anybody. Someone coming or going at the heart of our anony- mous society. A member of the crowd, one of the silent majority. The one who cries out.: sings and dreams within us all. This is the "quidam" whom this show allows to speak. This is the place that beckons -- a place for dreaming and genuine relations where all quidams, by pro- claiming their individuality, can finally emerge from anonymity.
