Cancelled: Dreams For Sale
Date and time24.8 – 12.9.2021
Dreams For Sale is performance by Studio Total, which is performed at the rock cave of the National Museum during August-September.
Piece by piece, millimeter by millimeter, as slow as the movement of tectonic plates, that is how the world changes. The choices have brought to this point. “You have to change your life”, said philosopher Peter Sloterdijk a decade ago. How small a change is too little, and how much is excessive?
What if all lived like Pentti Linkola? Fishing and roaming the forests – just like they are shown in an idyllic Business Finland advertisement? Linkola named his book “A dream of a better world”. Knowing what we do now, IKEA or Burger King should not sound like such an alluring choice. How far can people go? How far dare they go? Even staying still takes backward. To move forward or back? People have to make that choice. There is no escape.
Dreams for Sale is a total artwork full of visual and physical expression. Beneath the National Museum, into an underground cave, the performance creates a soiree for the audience, a market of dreams.
People are in a tunnel, but what is the light that can be seen at the end of it? Dreams for Sale is a performance about dreams, hope and new beginnings.
