A thing of beauty

 

 

A child bringing home road killes to diessect and find out what they look like on the inside. A teenage boy starting to realize that his sexual orientation is different, prefferaing men that are still and quiet. A grown man killing people and dissecting them as road kills. A desire growing into something more unctrollable every day. 

 

Inspired by the story of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer " A thing of beauty" is a performance about obsession and isolation and how both amplify each other. What happens when obsessions is pushing the world away until a small detail is left? A detail that becomes thousand, even ten thousand times bigget thand conquesrs the head like a blietz krieg. What happens when this small detail becomes a world? a world with only you as a citizen. a beaitufful isoloated universe that makes it´s own rules and categories? 

 

"A thing of beauty is an intruiging performance that explores the bounderies between beauty and cruelty and takes you on a trip through the dark caverns of the mind.
