Η Πόλις γεννιέται
Μια «κατακερματισμένη» παράσταση, εμπνευσμένη από τις ανώνυμες μαρτυρίες ανθρώπων, οι οποίοι έζησαν και μεγάλωσαν στο Ρέθυμνο του χθες και του σήμερα. Φωνές σημερινών γονιών, νέων, μαθητών. Ένα συνονθύλευμα καθημερινού λόγου, ακαδημαϊκής γνώσης, σωματικότητας, ποίησης και ζωντανής μουσικής.
