“We recently got fascinated by behavioral manipulation after seeing the documentary ‘Hot Girls Wanted’ by Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus on Netflix. Some say morality is negotiable…”

We encounter an endless stream of apparent choices. Every day we make decisions that seem to make us to what we are today. But, are these decisions really our own? In PUPPIES FOR SALE we question the authenticity of our choices. We swim against the current, to see whether our proclaimed options are obvious or need to be examined.

“An intriguing performance that stands on the border of live art “…” This performance excels in the soundtrack, the use of location and the intriguing movements and images, which on the one hand are aesthetic and robotic and on the other hand provocative and demanding”
