The structure of a Haiku poem forms the exoskeleton of this production, establishing a parallel between the inability to explain certain aspects of the ethology of insects and the human behavior. Insects are once again the epicenter of this work, evoking exotic creatures that support architectures that may well reminiscent of origami structures, articulated in an eternal fold unfolding of wings, even hinting Geishas of an imaginary dreamlike. Incomprehensible creatures, scenes and settings flood this work, until “the scope of the possible of a mortal life has been exhausted,” as Pindar in “The Myth of Sisyphus” by Albert Camus. “Empusa Poem” is an evolution of the previous work, “Insecto Primitivo ”, creating a multilanguage harmony between dance, physical theater and sport, and entering a new and disturbing entomological mythology imaginary Credits and datasheet
