“The Wonders of the Possible” 2022
Twittering Machine is supported by Lunarte Festival, Spazio PimOff, La Dante di Anversa, Pim Off Award 2020 for Contemporary Theater.
It is a multimedia live performance of theater and new technologies in which words, visuals and electronic music build a tragicomic tale. It’s Friday. An employee of a multinational, due to a tragic unforeseen event, is forced to stay longer than the office closing time. This unexpected event pushes the protagonist to reflect on the meaning of his daily actions: take the train to go to work, drink a coffee at the station bar, scroll a post on facebook. The perpetual replication of these mundane actions turn out to be unexpected incubators of cruelty. The contemporary individual applies and undergoes the practice of evil in situations considered normal – everything seems legitimate because everything is normal. Twittering Machine replicates the absurdity of contemporary society by staging a typical day of a typical employee, where time is a ruthless cog in a useless machine. A performance on the alienation of work, ethical aberration and the devaluation of human life, shaped through an abstract landscape that is none other than the emotional sphere of all of us. The project is inspired by Paul Klee’s painting, Die Zwitscher-Machine, a brightly colored but restless and controversial work in which four stylized birds placed on a slender structure are forced to “chirp” by the mechanical movement of a crank.
