Monkeymind is a Buddhist term and refers to a restless, temperamental, strange and confused spirit. Simon Mayer portrays this spirit on stage and tries to find the suitable way of expression by using text, music, singing, movement and performance. He tries to calm this spirit and communicate his intentions also with a hidden acoustic performance.
