Franz Kafka and his girl friend Dora Diamont were walking through a park in Berlin when they met a young girl, crying that she had lost her beloved doll Belinda. Dora and Kafka tell her that the doll is not lost. Belinda has embarked on glorious adventures! Dora and Kafka brings her postcards from Belinda detailing her adventures around the world.  We recreate the legend of Belinda to explore how imagination can heal loss and grief.
