The Guise is a piece inspired on the Allegory's of plato's cave, a story that essentially describes the human condition in one way or another. People just like us are imprisoned from birth in a cave. They are attached to that life and they are afraid to change. The chains made this human beings completely bind to themselves, to their lives.
The city is the cave and the cave is ourselves or part of us, the tree simbolizes the roots that suspend us and make us what we are.
The Guise is the thin line between what we believe and what is reality, is it possible that we actually conform ourselves to the rules of society where we born? Is this actually the ultimate true of life?
