Piece of Pleasure

How would we identify a crisis if it had a human form? How would it look, think, communicate?

Together with seven performers, we expose its physicality, we dive deep into the wounds testifying to our fulfilled lives. We indulge in the experience. We meet face to face with the crisis in a closed room, we wait, we play, we don't have to be anywhere in an hour. We hug each other. We sleep together, we smoke in the morning. We remain, we are, we surrender to the scarred body in the hope that "something" will happen. We practice faith in that "something" as well as faith that even "nothing" can be the outcome.

A generational testimony about a state of being where the crisis as a status quo does not seek solutions or to be overcome.

Inspired by the post-activism of the thinker Bayo Akomolafe, the ex-Buddhist nun Kaira Jewel Lingo and the paintings of the artist duo Muntean and Rosenblum.
