Agoraphobia is created in reaction to the destruction of the social system, from the need to speak out about it as an individual and as a community.
The performance is held in open air, on a large city centre square. From a distance spectators follow, by means of their mobile phones, a man who appears to be talking to himself. Until they are addressed by him directly and become part of his lonely protest, his appeal to society.
Agoraphobia is about a man who raises his voice in the streets but also about the people that ignore him, that walk by, and those that stop and listen.
