A proposal of this performance is to explore phenomena of physical attraction and love on its biological level. It is an attempt to mark the unity between two beginnings: when two energies are twisted into each other transforming into one.
Pheromone is a generator of physical attraction among all biological beings on our planet. At the microscopic level many species release sex pheromones to attract a mate, even among hermaphrodite beings.
This performance is an attempt to explore most intimate and private, unconsciousness of attraction, perfection of the cycle created by penetration.
A pheromone is a chemical substance that becomes a metaphor of love and its biological proof.
