  • Objects theatre

Inspired by the little-known abyss, this show stages a human body, maybe the last on Earth. It attracts or repulses uncanny creatures, becoming host to weird parasites, revealing its true nature.
The pluridisciplinary artist questions the porosity between the self and the outside world, between the domestic and the oneiric.
