Dogs (Les Chiens)

is a short text by Hervé Guibert, created very early in his writing career, containing open sexual content, and referred to by the author as his “pornographic book”. The animality of desire, expressed through the dual nature of a sado-masochistic relationship, is eventually sublimated to the vitality of the shared hetero-homo sexual act.

Director: Bojan Djordjev; performer: Stipe Kostanić –

Two actors, while shooting a movie, had to start a new scene after had supposedly ran a long distance. One of the actors went running before shooting the scene to feel tired. When he came back, sweaty, breathless, ready, the other actor asked: "Why don't you just pretend?" For me, theatre is about pretending but, at the same time, experience becomes the best performance.
