W Memorabilia (Phaedra's Laboratory)
The piece deals with womanhood through the notion of the suffering body and the archetypal, dark, tragic heroines: Phaedra, Medea and Pasiphae. The main axis of their artistic practice is the exploration of human emotion; the secret desires expressed through the body.'W Memorabilia (Phaedra's Laboratory)' is equivalent to a constantly reshaped, raw drawing. Just as the word " laboratory " in the title emphasizes the process rather than the end product. Also the stage composition carries the experience of manual labor, filled with raw materials that are shaped and destroyed, in juxtaposition with the human body that is also recognized as material and a moving sculpture. An experience of unpredictability results from the freedom in which the different elements are combined. Even the sound environment, is either created by the body or is directly related to it.
