The Perfect Slap is a multi layered piece which, on the surface level deals with the timing, coincidence, craving to reach the perfect and the moment of now & here while on a deeper level it explores the intangible zone of mind- the various psychological states of mind in response to social and personal life situations such as phenomenon of self pity, fear, ego, disgrace, insult, aggression, blame and complaint etc. as well as religious, social and private rituals and repetitive behaviours one goes through without being aware of them.
The Perfect Slap also refers to the psychological ailment called OCD which is actually a state of mind just like self shackled – ironically an obsession to reach a moment of peace and satisfaction and loosing the touch with the reality around which is also a metaphor for our illusionized daily life filled with unawareness!!!
The Perfect Slap is also a wake up call which compels you to think and connect with your own self.
