Slogan for Modern Times

 

 

 

Is this really happening? What is it? How do we describe what is happening when we don’t know what it is? How do we experience a space that is constantly dismantling itself, now?

 

 

This is happening now.

 

Stressing the moment before the moment of terror, the now anticipating the following now, two performers insist on the very moment before name-ing and identifying. How long can we stay present with the unidentified something, before it is named?

 

This project explores possibilities of the unknown, and allows the audience to fantasize about other worlds, other meanings, and odd relationships in a seemingly perceptible scenario. What we perceive as true might never be its definitive limit. Inspired by outcasts and abject physicalities, the performance is a determinate expression of inbetweens. Bodies, beings, things and codes of communication emerge and create a suitable universe for the undefined viscera. At length Slogan for Modern Times plays on the terrifying spaces in between the horrific and the appealing, the pleasureable and the perverted.
