Projecting [Space[

We were invited to make a performance in an old factory building of a closed mining company in the west of Germany.

After a few months it became clear that what we had to do -by all means-

was to ignore the building that we would work in.

Forget the past.

Refuse the unintended rough scenography of the industrial ruin.

We found images of a nearby Amazon factory due to open in 2021

and we went ahead and made a performance for its future ruin.

The future will not be nostalgic.
