The performance is a tool. The instrument is both musical and surgical. He peers at today, while building a reverse perspective in the twentieth century. Between round dances and mass executions, joke and responsibility for the crimes committed is a razor-sharp dialogue with us today. He does not have unambiguous, strict, imposed meanings, he does not try to teach, give instructions and propagandize. His task is to catch the vibrations of time through the noise, crackling and heart-rending cries of the media. With the help of deconstruction and protest, ignoring generally accepted conventions, it is possible to reach the very framework of culture, the architecture of the language, the basic codes. To expel the beast from ourselves, along with the rubbish of the mass culture, hardened cliches, phobias, addictions and taboos. Decompose everything found in alphabetical order, name, classify and return back, carefully removing the ugly rudiments.
