begins the journey to manhood, he discovers the bond between a man and a woman.
In a 17th century-style garden, two statues seemingly come to life. Exercising
great stamina, the Statue Act performers join together in a harmonious
balancing act that illustrates the reciprocity of love between a man and a
woman. Ultimately, greed proves a more powerful force than love when Man finds
himself tempted with an offer of wealth by the demon-like Stiltman.
Man believes that wealth will give him the ability to possess anything he
so desires. With this power, he can acquire love, like any other possession.
After learning this, he next finds himself in the confines of a garden. (San Mateo,
California). Here he witnesses a spectacular act of love and grace. The male-female pair,
looking like statues, perform their act upon a lone lily pad, in the center of a pond. It
is here the man learns harmony, balance and the strength of union. The pair, Yves Décoste
and Marie-Laurie Mesnage from Quidam.
