Strange is the being who feeds on being looked at, who absorbs the imperceptible and gives it value in its own heart, who builds its kingdom from how others see it. Its joy seems to be founded on what remains equivocal and can only be confirmed in the moment(ary).
If it holds true that there are contacts that intensify the desire which conjured them, then it is in this zone of dynamic unfulfillment that one must search for the source of theatrical eroticism. While acting, the performer dissolves the censorship that customarily applies to the liberty of metamorphosis inherent to Eros. The actor is several beings and things; ambiguities are no hindrance. What stimulates and gives life to an actor is permeability or, more specifically, the actor being penetrability itself.
