Programme Note

He looks like a part of us and yet he is never one of us.
The Mantichora, the Man-eater, devours his prey whole.
Sounds of besieged, a realm unveils. The edge of the body imperceptibly crosses over into the world of predators. A turf of immanence.

*A Manticore is a gigantic red lion, with human face, and three rows of teeth*
