The performance reflects on two highly topical issues that have put our daily future in check: the Covid 19 pandemic and the effect of pollution on the environment. Both in different ways force us to rethink our role in the global society to which we belong. The reality we live in has become alien, strange, and even incongruous. The daily images that we see of health personnel covered from top to bottom, and the streets with their passersby wearing masks, seem to come out of a futuristic and apocalyptic movie, which has become our reality. The performance embodys this new reality, sequences suddenly happen one after another. While walking around the city and visiting the events of art week, artist uses the surprise effect to dislodge the viewers, seeking to distance them from the obvious and force them to reflect on what is happening. The piece has a surreal character and can, at times, border on the absurd. The conclusion, if any, I leave it to the free interpretation of the audience.
