JUST DESIRE is a solo performance that shows us a series of crazy fantasies all structured around desire, through an inexhaustible cascade of action, words and song.
Smooth, shiny, plain and continuous, JUST DESIRE is like the finishes of the most inspirational consumer items of our time. Like a high-end telephone, a luxury perfume or the fastest car in the world – the Tesla Roadster – the performance is offered to us as the object of our desire. JUST DESIRE is a solo performance that provides us with a series of crazy fantasies all related to desire. The constant flowing interaction between the materials and the performer creates a sequence that takes from the mainstream imaginaries of our culture, but which plunges to unfathomable depths. In this cascade of inexhaustible of action, words and song, the performance speculates beyond the notion of an ‘I’ and the idea of a disjointed community.
