Liov reflects on the impact that internal and external struggles have on us and offers two readings: on the one hand it represents the intimate struggle and duality that inhabit all of us when we want to let go of what looms over us and continue advancing in life with strength and freedom. On the other hand, it shows how our inner conflicts are also projected onto our relationships, and expose the fine line that can exist between love and violence, between victim and aggressor, between desire and abuse. When one feels the need to shed the load that prevents full development, the opportunity arises for an opening. On the other side of that door, we find the monster: a shadow that keeps us company and strengthens our fears, blocking any transformation. We have to face it and make a decision: dissolution or reconciliation? Either way, we need to leave our comfort zone and accept the uncertainty. Composition is necessary. Who is braver: the warrior or the one who abandons the fight and offers forgiveness?
In LIOV, two characters - who are also one, and also all of us - face each other on stage, driven by the conflict between their opposing desires: survival versus a good life. One of them decides to rebel against his own wounds and fears: he duels against his own mask, the weight of which becomes unbearable. To dismantle that shield, he'll have to hit the bottom, dropping completely. Only by final surrender will he be able to discover that his greatest strength lies in self-love, and tenderness and compassion towards others.

he calls himself an "unlabeled" artist. He feels passionate about any way of artistic expression that expands the sensitivity of the individual.
