"Roadtrip to Hell" is a visual poem.

"Roadtrip to Hell" is a poetic fantasy.
"Roadtrip to Hell" is a theater oratorio.
"Roadtrip to Hell" is a play about the euphoria caused by released forms and desires. About the space without time. About the joyous fury of fantasy, like we see it in Bosch, Brögel, Dante and Blake. Hell is not the place of realization or non-realization of desires, but of the utter discovery that desire begins and ends within itself. Where there is no time, there is no development. Things are merely some mirror images of themselves. Hell is an experimental hypothesis about a form of life. It reveals hell not as an inevitability, but as a nuisance.

The roadtrip to hell is a journey to yourself. Hell is not forthcoming. Hell has already happened. Hell is here and now. "Where there is no desire, there is no hell. Where there is no hell, there is no desire. "
