EOIKA [ἔοικα- from greek language- to be similar, to appear] is a dance and theatre performance based on the concept of optical illusionism. Inspired to the work of the german artist Sebastian Bieniek EOIKA looks to the Cubism aesthetics of Picasso, to the surrealism of Magritte, and in the end to "Art and Visual Perception” of Rudolf Arnheim.
Starting from them bodies with the help of pencils, make up and handmade costumes two dancers/performer play with the audience and bluff, showing the reality as something completely unreal.
