The performance presents the image of a male body subjugated by an object in a loop: an orange high-heeled shoe whose heel is a 30 cm stake. Unable to stand and occupy an erect, masculine and dominating position, this body moves slowly across the horizontal plane through a choreography that condenses images that are culturally understood as seductive. There is an undercover performer who delivers accompanying librettos while whispering a secret phrase in the public’s ear.
