Production Details / Press Releases

In their first duet, Lea Martini and Diego Agulló explore the desire for the glittering stars of our mass culture. We will insist on actually impossible proximity so long that the objects of desire can’t take it anymore and we become blind, dazed by endless cheering.

When a star dies its image is tattooed behind our eyelids.

Its celestial body swells. Its outer layers are expelled via pulsations and it turns into a red giant to then become a white dwarf. Ultraviolet radiation shining out from the stripped-down hot stellar core lights up the ejected shells. It appears as dimmed glowing matter expanding out into space.

Just enough to reflect one last beam into this arena.

149.597.871km – the way from the earth to the sun – is their first joining into a theatre piece, an inclination towards unbearable but constituting distance.

Diego Agulló and Lea Martini started an artistic study on fandom and idols three years ago. They found different formats of display like the one to one installation ’15minutes of fame’ and performances dealing with the enigma of names.
