KAPUTT/KATASTROPHE - 15'45", 2012
In a sunny and summer zürich, young people from all europe meet for the street parade. The purpose is to be different, original, modern projected to the subversion of the current status. the new rule for the next eight hours is breaking the rules. everyone has become an actor without spectators, trying to represent himself.
a musical score, severely written, has been wearilyand obsessively played while an off mechanical voice repeats us of a catastrophically unchanged and unchangeable human condition. in the deformed and grotesque flow of human events, an old beardedfarmer suddenly appears, looking around and staring at us for a moment. maybe it’s a rest, a place to hope, but then everything starts again as anything happened, in the same point where everything didn’t start.
There’s no place, no life, no way to hope, there’s not.
