ego me


When the ego-mechanism fails,

Eros & Thanatos wake up.

Please, ego me.

For this solo Pieter investigated how the ego-mechanism fights the sexual and aggressive urges of the id. The solo became a competition between the Ego and the Id. De elevator in which the solo was performed became the body and the performer became the identity. 

Does the identity change according to its body?

How can an identity survive within a mechanical body?
