She was in an almost empty room, with no windows, no furniture, no wooden walls, and only one door. She opened the door and stepped into a dark corridor that seemed to never end, but eventually reached a theatre with empty seats. She sat down on one of the red chairs. A play was being prepared on stage. The actors came and sat in predetermined positions. Everywhere there were pieces of mirror suspended by invisible wires on which images rolled. In the middle of the stage a bed and on the bed a silhouette.
