pheromone is a secreted or excreted chemical factor that triggers a social response in members of the same species. Pheromones are chemicals capable of acting outside the body of the secreting individual to impact the behavior of the receiving individual.

A proposal of this performance is to explore phenomena of physical attraction and love on its biological level. It is an attempt to mark the unity between two beginnings: when two energies are twisted into each other transforming into one.

Pheromone is a generator of physical attraction among all biological beings on our planet. At the microscopic level many species release sex pheromones to attract a mate, even among hermaphrodite beings.

This performance is an attempt to explore most intimate and private, unconsciousness of attraction, perfection of the cycle created by penetration.

pheromone is a chemical substance that becomes a metaphor of  love and its biological proof.
