Choreography and performance: Irad Avni
There is nothing in this world but myself.
Everything lies beneath me. I fulfill light and beauty. I have a rich
inner world. I am love and perfection.
Only my reflection exists, I reflect myself reflecting through myself reflecting myself. I am a protected flower.
You might feel clean and free of psychology but at the same time also dead in some sense.
When you visit life you envy her, her totality. You will always have lack of totality I promise that your reflection will not bring death upon you but a peek into your innermost layers, the hidden sides that emerge and erupt every so often;
Give up on creating attempts to uphold your persona.
Don’t show everything at once, leave some room for curiosity.
But you, you are not exactly a classic Narcissus.
I hope that when you leave, you will love yourself and let go, you will be complete.
