Two individuals gravitate towards each other and clash in duels where their superficial harmony reveals conventional rivalries and unpleasant manipulations.

Beast without Beauty resonates most strongly today because it shows how beauty – which supposedly uplifts our souls – hides dangers when it is degraded into kitsch aesthetics that only mask platitudes and horrors. We are reminded of the odes to nature that are anything but innocent, of the faith in the future, of the glorification of bodies and dancing that purports to be emotional yet yields us to the power of banality.

Ironically nuanced, Carlo Massari’s disturbing, hard-hitting piece offers a welcome response to the absurd cruelty of human relationships.
