The "DRAGON" cycle creates a fictional, synthetic form that doesn't have any equivalent in nature,
but is a part of the mythology created by SUKA OFF.
The process of skin shedding is analogous to the one that takes place in nature, but in this case
it's the skin that sheds the burden of the flesh. On the other hand the image of flaying alive can also
remind the viewers of mythical and historical characters like Marsyas or Saint Bartholomeo.
The "skin shedding" - the separation from the matrix - is a converted process of creation.
The beginning of the performance shows a finished object / sculpture / image - a man covered
in a synthetic substance. The image gets transformed and deformed and as the end result
we receive the "dragon", an artificial form created on the basis of real human shapes.
