I Think I've Been Here Before 

“I Think I’ve Been Here Before” is a window beyond time, through which we view the cyclical path of life-essence expanding and transforming. We observe the journey of a creature in the formless, ethereal state, thrown into physical existence; and later, its inevitable mergence with the source. This video is a trailer alluding to the original 50 minute performance.
