The performance may show nudity.


The bodies of the performers take their positions, recombine, reconnect in a continuous plastic flow. The mechanisms of pervasively media-driven desire are revealed in the parodic expressions of orgiastic sexual encounters, for a society forced into a continuous consumption of pornophiliac situations. Tacitly, fifteen de-personalized performers dressed in turquoise bodysuits experience the obsession and show the excitement, in slow motion or at breakneck speed. The partouze is followed by the euphoria of a colourful social dance with a relentless dynamic, in a spiral of pulsating rhythm and Eros.
