Doll and man – afurther stage in human development? 20 percent of men in Japan aged between 30 and 40 have a blow-up doll as a partner. Why? Theproject seeks new ways in which an object can be manipulated, the relatonship between new circus and the puppet, freedom and limits,reality and illusion. The actors drew inspiraton from people who devote themselves to rituals, work with animals or perform puppettheatre, as well as inspiraton from modern technology and flm.
