b e s t i a r i o

”No one has seen my eyes – or those who have seen them are dead. If I were to open my eyelids – blood red and swollen – you would die instantly”

b e s t i a r i o is a stage work that approaches bestiaries – medieval collections of weird animals, monsters and unexplainable freaks of nature. On the scene it creates its own bodily and spatial bestiary.

The work studies monstrosity, fears, mysteries drained by explanations and death.

b e s t i a r i o imagines also the post-human future. It plays with the idea about how other species might write their own bestiaries on humans.
