Anatomy of a Point

by: Dorotea Šušak


Šušak’s story was chosen as one of the winning stories in a writers competition organized by the Croatian National Theatre “Ivan Zajc” from Rijeka, within the Deconfining project.
“Anatomy of a Point” offers an introspective exploration of identity with precision and emotional depth, inviting readers to contemplate the complexities of life. Divided into three parts, the story delicately examines the materiality, temporality, and physicality of existence, evoking feelings of displacement, isolation, and pain while leaving room for interpretation and introspection.
