In DOOM, Teresa Vittucci, in collaboration with Colin Self, explores the origins of the female figure as created in Genesis and Greek mythology: Eve and Pandora.
The second part of Vittucci‘s trilogy in praise of vulnerability – with the first part being the Swiss Dance Prize-winning piece HATE ME, TENDER – examines the two female figures from a queer-feminist perspective. The narrative of Eve and Pandora and the role attributions that go with them were and are decisive for the position of women* in all Christian-Judaic and Abrahamic societies today.

In a poetic exploration, Vittucci and Self fathom the tension between fe- male curiosity, transgression and consequence: what risk does the deci- sion to look entail?
