Description

The Anthropological Machine Powered by Beethoven

The Western civilization reached its new forms of brutality.  In the name of defense of European values we build fences, degrade other cultures to the level of rapists, criminals and animals. Diplomats keep on talking about the project of peace, and yet this peace is based on war. They are ready to suspend the fifth commandment of Christianity in the name of freedom, democracy and equality. Our wars from the past are knocking on the door of present.

The performance, created as a result of collaboration between Polish and Slovenian performers is a visual fairy tale about civilization seen as a failed project of the taming of man. Five people on stage, naked and suspicious, average and far from being perfect, address the masterpiece of the European culture, the majestic Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. Deprived of grandeur or romanticism, limited to their own explicit literalism, digital and dispersed in the visual, deaf due to the excessive noise and continuing to repeat themselves like a broken record that needs to be turned off, they try to re-connect with The Animal inside them.

Meeting with the authors Bojan Jablanovec and Anita Wach will be held after the performance
