The stage is occupied by the punk band Saint Cheatersburg, surrounded by fashion that spits on our understanding of what’s conventional. The choking voices of global capitalism, the isolation of human life, the space stolen from one’s neighbours and billions of used jeans are floating in our mental consciousness leaving agonizing complaints behind. Where lies the beauty in all of this?

The variations of Saint Cheatersburg’s sound work “Neighbours” drifts uncannily through both our physical and mental dimensions. We think we originate from there, but where we don’t belong. Exposing itself in the form of an animal, environment, fellow human being. The variations of our neighbours. Unknown to us in an unexplored environment, getting as excited as we don’t give a fuck.

The animal is a human to a human and the human is a human to an animal. The environment is the place of birth and decay of our jeans.

Performance as a prelude for awakening.

Illuminated by the glow of enlightenment, we have grown to believe that we are the crown of nature, thinking that we know it all and that the universe desperately needs us to form a moral ground for it to feel upon, just like the jeans need water. It’s a fantasy. A delusion. It is time to wake up from this dream, to face the complete loneliness, the isolation and sneeze. Like a bunch of gypsies, we stand on the edge of the unknown world, that is deaf to their music, cares for their hopelessness as little as their suffering and their jeans.

Ready, steady, zip up!
