Running Sushi is a dialogue based piece, a piece for an actress and an actor. An everyday scene with Steffi and Johnny visiting a Running Sushi restaurant. During the inconsequential conversation we gain an insight into the parallel world of the two protagonists’ unspoken thoughts and feelings. Every piece of sushi evokes a story from this relationship's subconscious and sets wish granting machines in motion, to produce grotesque parallel worlds and extreme situations.
