Multiple award-winning performance "Verissimilitude" (2004/2005) is an ensemble piece about the territory of subjectivity and perception, a study of the extremes of human instinct.
Inspired by Michel Foucault's text The Four Similitudes, Verissimilitude deciphers subconscious symbols and explores the fabric of the human condition.
A world held in tension by laws and restrained compulsion. Jealousy and blind emulation; affinity and mechanisms of isolation. A witness trying to halt the machine of fate. A modern-day cannibal surrenders to his final victim in pursuit of self-annihilation. The hunter and the hunted are one.
“By means of this interplay, the world remains identical; resemblances continue to be what they are, and to resemble one another. The same remains the same, riveted unto itself.” Michel Foucault
