Like theater artist he has a special interest in the way reality is captured by the mass media: pop songs, action movies, political speech, telenovelas, TV comercials and reallity shows. In some way he prefers to work with fictional products as raw material rather than with reality itself, being he is concerned about how fiction constructs ideology as a narrative, and how fiction creates social reality. He fights constantly so that his works are not all about theater or fiction itself, and he almost always fails.
