man-eater : (figuré) n. mante religieuse

“Man-eater” in English is translated as “praying mantis” in French. This act also pays tribute to the concept of “Art Monster”, the artist who sacrifices everything, himself and his loved ones, who devours to create and who lets himself be devoured by his artistic vision.

An angelical creature, a diabolical femme fatale is caught between two worlds, her two selves. Like the magical Firebird, she is both a blessing and a curse. Her dance depicts an internal struggle: a quest to break away, make peace and fly free.
