In FM [featuring mortuum] we witness a return to romantic conceptualism. The piece is at once poetic and familiar but extremely strange and macabre. It prompts us to reflect on the meaning of life, the presence of death, and the theatre as locus of every possibility, even that of rendering the impossible possible. In this investigation into make-believe two pieces coexist in parallel, two objects, one that is alive and another, dead, that becomes the central element of creation. It is a piece that is simultaneously happy and sad, charged with meaning by its multiple layers, which disarm us in a way that is accessible yet profound
