The equilibrist is a monologue dedicated to the time of waiting, to the time before starting.
…An acrobat prepares for performance. Tries to balance and to hold himself up, before walking on the rope. Always facing the danger of falling-of a small death.
A metaphor about man in front of something bigger than him, of something that one cannot control or predict, in front of a tight spot which only by traversing it ,one will find out whether one will manage to overcome it or not.
