Erika Webe chooses and lives the way of clown, she believes in poetic universes as invitations to each person to dream, as a surreal pause with oneself and beauty when shared.
Existing as a clown in a frenetic society is going against the tide,
its learning to give time to details so they can be alive as well.
Existing as a clown is perceiving the absurd in the present,
its dancing in a logic other and with an open look
and a soul able to listen.
It is an invitation to the illusion of a poetical,
chaotically and out of time universe.
