Maniac – Opinion Public


The worry of order and the meticulous management of each deed and gesture may be virtuous, but what about the mania, if not that it haunts each of us like an irresistible temptation. So many gestures, so many fixed ideas that reassure and frame us, constituting what we believe to be: multiple “I’s” which create confusion about our own identity … An interior struggle, an obsession with precise gestures by a deliberately neutral-gender duo. Harmony, gentleness, opposition: Which facet will have the last word?
