Fine Entertainment 1
Description: Two actors are seated on opposite sides of a table. Attached to their bodies are various food products. With small tools and their hands, they mutually open each others packages.
BBB Johannes Deimling, together with Ingo Hugger from his Loss of Content line of action, presents the performance “Fine Entertainment 1”. The performed dialogue deals - wordlessly - but nevertheless very insistently, with language as commodity, the existential conditions of a possible culture of debate and with the question of how crucial the ambience would be for a corresponding loss of content. The fact, behind the backdrop of an upcoming buffet, that packaged foodstuffs such as rice, milk or flour operationally replace the arguments and terms firmly put into perspective this argument-free conception of normality.
