Concept / perfromance: Tashi Iwaoka and Fazle Shairmahomed
Live sound composition: Stefano Sgarbi
Being inspired by the Nagisa Ohshima's film, In the Realm of the Senses, about the controversial vulgar sex and death scandal of Sada Abe in Japan, two male dancers and a sound artist attempt to create a space for a certain kind of spiritual purification, blurring the tension between life and death. Their interaction and sexual obsession leads to an existential metamorphosis, suggesting spiritual liberation.
