YOKU-BOU “Desire for Lust”, Japanese, means desire for lust and is the starting point of the research for this interdisciplinary performance. Lust and desire are strong driving forces for our actions, feelings and thoughts. Desire is deeply connected with craving and greed. It is a mental drive for dealing with deficiencies of psychological (emotions, wishes, phantasies) and physical nature (urges, pain, hunger, thirst). Curiosity, the craving for knowledge, leads to discoveries, inventions and development. Greed on the other hand is the negative manifestation of desire and describes the excessive pursuit of material wealth regardless of its practical use. Lust is the pleasant way of experiencing things and is a vital part of our basic drives and needs. Lust can present itself in dining, athletic and creative activities and as part of experiencing the sexual act.
