Light Killer – 2015

Light Killer

by Magdalena Barile.

Mikail and Hotcal are two young beings with a peculiarity: they irradiate light. They are recruited by “The Greek”, a mysterious artist, who wishes to steal their light by promising beauty and eternity as a contemporary Mephistopheles. A kaleidoscopic game that plays with four different languages: words, body, light and shadow attending upon the same narration. The story of two bodies and their lights.

Which are the shining resources of the human body?
Is the human body just a reflective body or is it a shining source itself?
And if it shines where does it take its sources?
Can we really see a body shine? Or is it just an artistic illusion?

An enlightening play for all the humans and their shadows.
