Groupe Pluton is working on its first creation inspired by the following quotation from Kafka: ‘We have been expelled from Paradise but even so it has not been destroyed. This expulsion in a way is lucky, because if we hadn’t been expelled Paradise would have been destroyed.’
At the dawn of time, there are two naked bodies in a place without line or limit. A Power seizes them. It is in their nature to play, so they play, just as they please, with a brutal joy that contorts faces and disarticulates bodies. Innocent brutes, they dance little dances. There is neither fear, nor shame, nor sin. Their nudity is absolute: what would they have to hide? And from whom? It is their very being that is naked. Playing with Grace they sacrifice it, dress in it, undress, reconquer it. And yet Grace cannot be gained or lost. But that, how could they know?
