This is the newest piece of work from the Noi Ansamble but that's not the point. And there isn't enough time to avoid it. That being, the issue. The issue is: there's something that needs to be dealt with. And it needs to be dealt with now. ASAP! In the most efficient way possible. Why? Because time could be running out.
What the Ansamble are doing right now is probably not the best course of action. It could be but it probably isn't. Either way the issue is still a problem. A problem that needs to be dealt with.
Try doing that faster with a hot potato in your mouth.
It'll be good for you.
But maybe they're doing the best they can given the circumstances. And what are the circumstances? Their faces are masked by your reflection. Their voices are inaudible. But they keep on going. Searching for solutions, listening to advice, trying to improve.
Love yourself. Place one hand on your belly and sync the mantra with your breath. Let any distracting thoughts float by like clouds.
It's good for you.
Noi Ansamble present a world that is not a dystopia. Neither is it a documentary about homosapiens. Nor is it about navigating your way through a wasteland of self help Youtube videos. Nor does this have anything to do with International Women's Day. Nor is this 2019.Nor is it about identity or purposelessness
The initial version of First to Blink was developed as part of Vorspiel Transmediale/CTM 2019 Festival and presented as a 3 hour performance intervention. At ACUD Macht Neu.
