Curiosity and Joy

2009

This play is a reflection on the (im)possibility of accepting diversity and the other. The fragmented body of the neoplasm—the fruit of unstable conditions—overcomes barriers, loves and denies itself and others, wanders around, forgetting its profession. It frequently and with pleasure divides, goes through dangerous palpation, questions the possibility of contact with the experience of the other. Poorly brought up but very successful, it invites us to a trans-species transition.

Peep through the glass and wave. The brevity of a moment is captured. Still figures in their gesture. Look at me, and away from me. Do they wear their own emotions, or mine?
