A magical trick is presented on stage, with a magician, his girl and an assistant.
The magician and his girl place the assistant in a box.
A fragmented nude body and two male hands kneading dough are displayed on TV.
A mouth on display narrates a synthesis of texts (Alice in wonderland, daily press release, Molly’s monologue).
The magician and his girl are struggling to get the assistant out of the box.
In the meanwhile the assistant has been metamorphosed into a bunny.
“oh little bunny, little bunny”
The “bunny” after resisting, is revealed.
It is a set up trick, which comments on group illusions, unveiled (or not) trickeries of live image-representation (see. current news).
The master – slave dipole, which is a motif that incurs in western thinking, reveals the fatherly bonds with power, by using a “trick” as a natural tendency in every interaction.
“..and I will eat the last slice and whoever disagrees I will eat him too” said the lion.
