Betelgez Bakelit center

A comparison of the explosion of a star with the social explosion. 
A collage of short shots of political speeches that sound more like announcements of explosions… towards big changes in the global map. 
Speeches that promised the birth of new conditions, in which nothing could be like the old ones.
Speeches that inspired a revolutionary ferment, which would tear down the old order.
Words that resulted to a constant vibration of the humanity at a high frequency and to scatter faith, hope, certainty… but at the same time anger hatred and despair.

Dance. Music. Circus.
Four dancers-acrobats manage a surface that does not have a stable equilibrium.

The star Betelgez is expected to explode as supernova. A second sun will rise in the skies of the Earth. The brightness of the explosion will be so strong that will appear in the sky for approximately 15 days. An explosion that may have already happened and we have not yet understood it. It may be happening now but we are going to learn about it long after or after millions of years (very close to our never).

We are in an awkward present full of increasing compression, where the boom may never come, but the method of the fabricated future has broken down irretrievably.

Except of desperation, the inability to forecast in a chaotic system, gives space to a critical question: What is the expectation of human life?

A collage of political speeches in a live soundscape is been gradually created where the concepts of oscillation, landing, lifting, personal action appear. An interactive combination and interrelation with the persons and the items arise during the process.
