Ruth is a solo performance that visualizes the effect external actions can have on the body. Even things that on the outside seem quite ordinary and obvious can have a pretty strong effect on the inside. A word, for example, which in the social context only passes and disappears, can remain inside and grow for years. All kinds of actions can have that effect.
In Ruth we see the changeable body, which grows, magnifies emotions and is transformed into formations that act in different ways.
