Mental Masturbation

opening performance of BIPOD 2004 - 1st edition

The work deals with the idea of self-image in relation to consequent feelings that result from an excessive and intense emotional incident. Feelings of guilt and regret that haunt us in our inability to cope with an ideal human image presented by society and religion, and that became like an iconic sign, which directs our lives and beliefs.  

Performed in
• Beirut International Dance Platform (BID Platform-2004), Theatre Monnot, Beirut
• Endansa Festival, L’Espai, Barcelona, May 2004.
