PERFORMANCE

DECODEX

 

The same maze of madness. The same fragments of hallucinated memories, straight out of Codex Serafinianus. The same imaginary map of a mysterious civilization. Building on Codex, Decodex brought to life strange and amusing creatures, wearing costumes extending the bodies. Endless horns and trunks, webbed hands and feet ; protrusions in movement transforming human silhouettes... Begetting the question: where are we? In a parallel world, populated by dancers of disproportionate sizes, creatures half-human half-plant looking for linings of disappearance. Outside of the vertical human world.
