El Sueño de la Razón Produce Monstruos: The Mys-teriors

Conceived and performed by Irina Andreyevna Kruchinina and Elvis Bendana Rivas.

November 9-15

What is the difference between what we wish for and what we are,
if what we are is wishful, and what we wish for is deceptive?
The question is what is a net value of a human?

The form of performance enables to put out their fantasies, wishes, an attempt to connect them through self-expression
as well as self-chiseling through poetry and music, and leave it entirely up to the viewers’ personal subjectivity.
The assumption is what remains in common between the performer and the viewer may be dubbed as a grain of common
humanity which we may seed for further performances in that aesthetics.
