On 15 and 16 December, the Turbina Exhibition Space, Bistro and Living Room will host a performance by Simon Regős.
Title: Ferenc Réder/ Simon Regős: LASSURANCE
Subtitle: Colloquium III stage in memory of Milan Kundera
Why has the joy of Slowness disappeared? What can a person who longs for real pleasure, for physical encounter, do in a society that is fragmented to the extreme, under the spell of speed? This is what the members of a mixed company gathered in a chateau in France are looking for: entomologists, television presenters, a politician, a typist, and Madame de T. from the eighteenth century and her adoring knight. Milan Kundera’s novel of the same name, Slowness, interprets the story and the antecedents of a single adventurous night, with three love threads depicting the different stages and tempos of sensuality. Our performance is an attempt to visualise the accelerating slowness. The characters crash and bounce, humiliate, excite and seduce each other in the ecstasy of speed, while compulsively sharing with us their thoughts on Europeanism, the distorting gaze of the public, the philosophy of Epicurus, and above all, slutty pleasure.
An exam performance by the University of Theatre and Film Arts!
