Katedrala Hall



The other does not exist.
Psychoanalysis does not work.
The world is mad.

It appears in the form of the humanoid-contaminated lighting of the Katedrala Hall, a robot and two young women from an a cappella theatre.
Barefooted shepherdesses dance across the sky, because that is the only way. Silence, freed from expectation, gently hibernates behind the trees of Kino Šiška. Cups of coffee carelessly smoke in the cathedral of the white mosque, so that one rolls away. Two listen quietly to the news at the bottom of the sea.

The insignificant one quickly slips into infinity to learn to knit. Because the lights were too loud, aliens gracefully disappear into black light. You crazy flower.

At the kind request of the robot Attitude, a green and an orange bag drown themselves among the audience. The show gently dances in your head, because no one else does. Because it is hot, two voices nicely embrace your neck. Beams of light accidentally tickle you at the back of the head in order to seduce you. The glowing web sacrifices its life at the edge of the world, in order to feel something bigger. My mind surprisingly disappears somewhere in the middle of the stage and everyone is so very worried. A cold haze catches fire in front of your eyes in order to be heard.

Isn’t that what we do constantly? We weave a story about who we are. We try to make this story solid, all-encompassing, free of holes and flaws. But what is left when we unravel these stories, those threads. What is left when we stop knitting our lives in the latest fashion?
