GEORGE is lonely. Really lonely. For he is the last of his kind. GEORGE lives at his own, surreal pace. A paradox in the time of restless multitasking.
GEORGE longs for the end and thinks of loved ones, achievements and the recipe for roast stuffed with the cutest animals in the world. Melancholia and sadness define his existence, but GEORGE is just fine …
Lonesome George, the last Pinta giant turtle who died in 2012 became a metaphor for a state of loneliness and hopelessness. Using fragments of Bonn Park’s play „Traurigkeit und Melancholie”, GEORGE is a reflection on loneliness and melancholia as radical states of being.
