For us Pandora’s box is any costume, mask, object or action capable of generating a monster. The opening of the box corresponds in this phase, too, to the introduction of finite time, a countdown, the perception of an imminent end. For us the age of gold is a common impulse, perhaps tempered but present in all human beings: it is a creation instinct which, in our case, passes through material and bodily seduction.
We are experimenting with the creation and transformation on stage of mud masks. We’re improvising with clay and, in the resulting deconstructed orgy, we are looking for images overflowing the body’s boundaries and limits.
