A fat blue blob on a pink scooter and a yellow pear hanging from a green tree. A clear-cut basic dramatic constellation. But everything slips when the falling fruit outsmarts physics, for base motives and against its laws. In psychoanalytic dream interpretation the pear stands – or hangs – for sexuality.
