Ivo Dimchev, all-round artist with roots in physical theatre tells the story of the aging diva Lili Handel in an androgynous performance of shocking intensity. The tragedy of her fading beauty that makes her into a faceless and genderless creature reaches down into the depths of her physical being. Dimchev sings his song with the voice of a eunuch. And that ancient desire of the stage diva to give the public her innermost life appears sinisterly transformed in Dimchev's attempt to auction his own blood, drawn live, to the highest bidder. The show becomes an elegy to the sweetest of all vices that of not being able to escape out of one's own skin even when it has lost all its elasticity.
