No one can really know the other, we often find ourselves in front of hidden, masked figures that hide their inner being that can certainly not be fully evaluated starting from appearance.Magritte said; "The power of mystery manifests itself by evoking the mystery of beings that seem familiar to us". The alienating is not something that strikes us when we are in front of an unreal situation. The neutral mask expresses the alienating in the theater, erasing the face, it cancels the possibility of a body moving from object to subject, and vice versa. "The mystery is the banality that unites all things".
