The End must go on
A performance by Joao Evangelista and Felix Kubin
"Or how to survive midnight without becoming a pumpkin in 10 easy steps"
Six persons perform their functions within a game system, shaped as a random generator of worst case scenarios. Within the duration of one hour, they attempt to achieve the most perfect representation of 'The End of ...' using the means available which prove to be inadequate, leading to constant misrepresentations.
The work presents an exhaustion of the imagination of disaster, so present in nowadays culture, and the demystification of The End as a delusional human construct.
