The spectators enter the garden, shoes off, walking barefoot in the full-moon night, surrounded by their shadows…. They proceed inside an obscure structure, through an aggregative density that seems paradoxically weightless, and soon leads them to a deep sinkhole, as the perimeter of the drama, where the play could eventually start.
In the pursuit of Thomas Man’s novel, we devised an apparatus trying to contain the invasion of the epidemic disease, the Cholera, trying to repulse the wind of Death and its somberness to preserve the particles of life scattered behind the illusory protection wall… Wind and water are never considering the efficiency of human obstacles as impassable; their natures are untamable, driven by encroachment, over-crossing, overflowing … The flooding of both Bangkok and Venice is a real and non-contingent fact… here despite the awkwardly dismembering landscape, with its lost whiteness, its lost paradise…The pool was a pool, not any more…it turns into a deep, bottomless sinkhole, engraving and digging the ground to find the door to hell…. while the moonlight observes the “dance macabre ” of the daemon in the Siamese twin sister of Venice, Bkk.
