La intención del “Proyecto Geisha” es la de revelar la oculta Geisha del mundo y fundirlos con los recurrentes temas del imaginario japonés. La cultura del pueblo del sol naciente sigue anclada en un sólido pasado de tradiciones codificadas durante cientos de años que no da el paso al frenético y tecnológico presente. Ser una Geisha, viviendo en una eterna sombra y en un mundo riguroso, sin cambios y de inmortales gestos, el voto a una existencia al arte provocando un intenso deseo de atracción, que produce el instinto para mostrar a algunos de modo impalpable criaturas en contacto con la oscuridad que quiere corromperlas.

The intent of the “Geisha Project” is to reveal the hidden Geisha’s world and to melt it with the recurring themes of Japanese imaginary. The culture of the rising sun people remains anchored to a strong past made of traditions codified in hundredses of years, which do not give the step to a frenetic and technological present. Be a Geisha, living in an eternal shade and rigour world, made of unchanged and immortal gestures, to vote its existence to the art provokes an intense attraction wish, it produces the instinct to show some so impalpable creatures in contact with the darkness which wants to corrupt them.
