"There is something that is constantly happening. Everything we see conceals something else, and we desire to see beyond what is visible. This interest can take the form of a rather intense experience, akin to inner conflict, some would say, between the visible that is hidden and the visible that is present." Rene Magritte
In an aesthetic universe inspired by the surrealist world of painter Rene Magritte, our story speaks about the social status of the contemporary individual caught between the social mask and the reality of personal life, between the courage of maturation and its absence. It's a treatise on inner division, an oscillation between social pressure and the intimate universe. I Am That Clown is a nonverbal performance in which the characters are marionnettes.
