Monday, the first one, at the bank of the canal:

...On the river bank. A posture of a figure reminds a prisoner before the execution. The performer wears her grandmother’s shirt with a typical embroidery. In the middle of the song she jumps into the river, crosses it while singing and comes out on the other end, takes off her shirt living it embroidery up on the shore like a white flag and walks away.
