Trickster-p’s entire body of work is characterised by its unique theatrical language that brings together different disciplines. Original formats are thus created for each new project, always placing the audience’s experience at the forefront. While the duo has often explored spatial dimensions through visual arts, set design or architecture, with Book is a Book is a Book, the artists focus on text, graphics and literature to explore the world of books as a means of expression. In this performance, the audience, equipped with headphones, turns the pages of a book which describes a journey made of words and images, and which, mixed with the sounds and light variations of the surrounding space, invites them to abandon themselves to the delights of imagination. Book is a Book is a Book is a journey in the mind and with the mind.
