Description

El Dorado, the Clowns' Raid of Destruction leads the public on a rough ride towards the darkest side of desire and explores the paradoxes of the human condition, drawing inspiration from the novel Daimòn by Argentine writer Abel Posse, from the rapacity of the rebel conqueror Lope de Aguirre and from the description of the Amazonas, defined as a land where every desire comes to an end. Semper develops an abstract vision of the world, descending into the most bitter crux of what it means to be human. "To be born as a human being is natural, to remain a human being is heroic".
