I can not imagine how desperate one must be I order to use violence against an old man, for the sake of stealing his watch and his wallet containing a tiny amount of cash. How does one willingly inflict pain onto another, if ones own life does not depend on it?
I try to imagine, try to feel hungry enough or outlawed enough to experience that human empathy is not something that applies to me. But I can't.
Maybe I am not hungry enough. Maybe my surroundings accept me too much, being the white mail that I am. Or maybe I am not greedy enough. Whichever it is, I hope that I never will be.
This video is one of the tools for an open-source physical-theatre project by Jens Bäckvall and Christian Adelhorst Rossil.
Every day in 2012, we will create a small movement or other idea for the stage with a minimum length of 10 seconds. This will be filmed and uploaded. The uploads are not meant as finished material, but are sketches for possible further work.
Every video and the things done in them are open-source, meaning that anyone may copy, use or be inspired by the videos and movements and use them in any way they want to. All that we ask is that you mention our names in any flyers etc. if you use it. Also, we ask you to comment on the material, either through writing or creating and filming material of your own. Anything you upload will also become open-source and a part of the project.
In the beginning of 2013, we will create a performance, based on and using some or all of the material that we, and others, have created.
