Total Damage is an absolute expenditure of existing. Destruction, from which our phoenix rises - ruin is our oeuvre. The place where existence is possible only as permanent apocalypse. Revealing of what is hidden, manifestation of what is double, triple and multiple, discerning of what is single. We are moved by desire, which is totally expended, without being exhausted. Desire that gives you fever and has no purpose, besides actualizing itself. Not to attain its object,  because there is no object, but to be constant reality. Desire has no perspective, doesn’t meet the dark melancholy of its accomplishment. Its world is absolute and it motor is perpetuum. We are trotskyists of desire.


Metheor is group of artistic accomplices with inconstant composition, working with stage, visual and textual artistic and critical forms. Besides Ani Vaseva (author, director, theoretician, costume and stage designer), Boyan Manchev (author, dramaturge, theoretician), Lonid Yovchev (actor and co-author) and Georgi Sharov (graphic designer, stage designer, photographer and musician), among the active participants in the work process of Metheor in different periods are the actors Petar Genkov and Galya Kostadinova, the artist, costume and stage designer Aglika Terzieva, the costume designer Maitia Cibulka Galvez, the musicians Nino Tiberio Gomez (DataTransporter) , Yana Mancheva, etc.
