mixed doubles

one person plays football, another - chess, someone else plays roulette or ... on stage. normally the rules of the game are not known. but how to find out what game you are particularly in at this particular time. should the queen be captured by the knight if the king is poisoned by gertrude. should penalty be appointed if red comes out five times and juliet is pale and motionless.
the characters of the mixed doubles ignore these questions. related to different performances taking place at the same time they dance in extremely nonlinear time. their chance to rescue depends on the speed of their reaction to the situations they bump into. will they eventually get to the play, the one they are dreaming of, or will stay in distorted reality of parallel narratives - this is the question to be answered in the course of mixed doubles.
