The buses are slowly finishing their journey for the day. After their last ride, they go to the depot where they will be serviced, cleaned and filled with petrol. This time, as an exception, they make their last stop at Plac Wolności, taking in irregular passengers. These people will be now sitting for twenty minutes in buses which will be slowly going to sleep. Then, they will get out at the depot, experience a certain situation and start back again.
The project aims at an exceptional and unforgettable presence The journey in the belly of a machine whale, from point A to point A', while the machine gets filled with breath of chaotic human presence. We welcome all willing to travel to the depot at Kacza street.
