In the book «Through the Darkness to the Light», Lubomira Lavrikova reveals a transformation of one’s inner self, a transcendental journey through the darkness, which finally leads to the light. It is a mystical revelation that includes a meeting with special beings. Some parts are almost sci-fi, playing behind the ordinary time line. Other parts are related to Zurich, especially to the lake of Zurich and the art scene. It is a play with the meaning of words as well as with diverse cultures behind which human feelings remain identical.
