It is said that the gaze of certain animals is much more power full, more acute, and even more cruel of that of the men and however without a glance. A blindfolded figure co-habit with the audience a space, the space of vision, the theatre, amplifying the obliqueness of the gaze, the observation as a specific attention to angles, to defection, to a vision able to withhold memory as a natural reserve, without history, without tragedy, without the event. Two eyes can always dissociate themselves from the point of view of their organic function but this failing of vision donates to all the senses a resource which is virtual, potential, dynamics, producing a motion which is at the same time visual, auditory, kinetic and tactile. Dance with its potential and fragility is the protagonist of a double mirror self portrait where the image of the self is absent, what remains is only the intimacy of the bodies, a feminine energy, pushing  to the potentiality of wanting beyond seeing, as in an adventure. When you let fall on your shoulders the problem of identity that's the moment when the subject appears with its own autonomy.

The work presents itself in the form of a durational piece on the original score of 61 minutes Thursday Afternoon from Brian Eno and it is structured on the following in a unique ambient of two solos interpreted by Cristina Kristal Rizzo and Annamaria Ajmone, as in a continuos and hypnotic flux or in a pictorial landscape where everybody is invited to loose out their own identity. The title ikea evokes, playing with the most famous domestic imaginary in the world, the idea of a body auto-design, intended as an exotic space, in the sense of foreign or not known.
