Reactions on «Collision»
... Object woman, child-woman, mother woman, femme fatale, object man, child-man...etc. "Collision" is the speechless meeting of two people of our times, in a bizarre world of potted plants which surround the stage. He, pale, expressionless face, mostly with an inward stare, reminiscient of a Pierrot. She, cigarette constantly dangling from her lips, high heels, blue minidress and screaming red hair reminds one more of a Yvonne Printemps, sketched by Toulouse-Lautrec.
