A place where aggression becomes playful and perversion becomes aesthetic

“Cute aggression, or playful aggression, is superficially aggressive behavior caused by seeing something cute” -wikipedia

«Cute aggression» is a performance that takes a close look at our inner drive towards aggression and violent transgression. This urge can be viewed as abnormal or aberrant, through destruction we create beauty. The piece aims to reflect on the demarcation lines between aesthetics and perversion.

At what point does the quest for intimacy become violent? Can violence be beautiful and why are we so fascinated by it? Is it possible to find something ethically despicable but at the same time very attractive and beautiful?
