- Creation 2009 – Time-length : 35 minutes
- Street performance
- All publics
The idea consists in staging collective alienation which makes of any of us a torturer and a victim, in showing how the fear of exclusion, rivalry between people, narcissistic and egocentric behaviours can destroy individuals.
No more perspective, no more distance: to come through, to be with it and after all blind to the others, withdrawn into oneself, onto one’s own social misery.
The group, in what looks like a collective trance, is going to experience the forms of this mental alienation in their bodies mechanically constrained until the final implosion and the tragic destruction of the beings.
The word “pathetic” may come up to the mind first. “Derisive” as well…for laughter may be part of the solution.
