Blood, poetry and music from the white whore's boudoir
Lili Handel is the story of a diva unable to admit that her time is over. It’s not just her beauty that’s faded; Lili has become a sexless and faceless creature. She has created a phantom in the struggle to keep her former-self alive.
Ivo Dimchev explores the visceral human body. He is more than an external form to be observed by audiences. Dimchev extends his insides to you, through voice and movement – even offering up his own blood.
