SMS & Love
Piece for four friends in a chicken coop
This piece for 4 performers questions the intimacy of friendship. Drawing on their own "autobiographical" experiences, they explore broader themes such as the "cultural" and "social" in the construction of an identity within a small group of friends. In this show, animality (the chicken coop, in fact) is a metaphorical image that the artist lends to her/his intimate relationships. An approach that also presents the body more as an object and a sexual subject.
