EDEN juxtaposes two worlds that are simultaneously present in the meeting between a performer and an audience. The here and now of the theatrical meeting collides with the realm of images that hover in the spaces within, outside and in-between the bodies. Working with these images through a figure of a clown, EDEN collides opposites and stages paradoxes playfully and with a sense of humor. EDEN is not a blissful state of rest. EDEN is a place of healing with a razorblade.
If tenderness was concentrated to an essence, or turned to extremity beyond imagining, what would it look like, would I remember it like this?
