His formal research always aims to establish a dialectic relationship with the audience, considering it an active part of the work. His formal strategies involve concepts such as the obscene (as what is forced out of the scene), crisis, accident, provocation, instability, the extraordinary (as what is detached from order), memory, death and violence. His stagings aim to become a field for multiple viewpoints to converge.
