Tea is boiled in the market in Zebraa. It smells wonderful of cinnamon, ginger and cardamom. Here it is never calm. Voices, pigeonkutter, quacking frogs and birds in the sky. A calf rests quietly and can an elephant mean bad luck? Sounding music and hilarious tones while the tea is boiling. When will it be ready?

Two worlds meet between the contemporary Swedish and Indian classical dance, Koochi Poodi. An actor, a musician and two dancers portray a day in the market ...
