PERFORMANCE IMPULSTANZ 
Lau Lukkarila »NYXXX«
In a world of post­-xxx, what the heck does it mean to become an engineer of one’s own desire? Does eros still have a chance? And what has happened to catharsis? Lau Lukkarila investigates eroticism through lived experience and the idea of an emotional body. NYXXX is inspired by the fierce character of Nyx, the Greek goddess of the Night. Accompanied by sentimental darkness, supportive underpants, discomforting arousals, breathtaking negligés, an electric guitar and post-romantic nightfall, NYXXX takes us on a lap(dog)dance for the long night of the present day.
