Cabaret of the political absurd
“ONE THING IS WHAT THINGS LOOK LIKE. ANOTHER IS WHAT THEY ARE REALLY LIKE. IN FACT THINGS ARE WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE.”
Two back-up singers alone on an empty stage. No solo singer, no band. They seem pretty lost, though in fact they are not as helpless as they look. They have a PROGRAM. They have an opportunity to take over the game. You are either in or you are out. And they decide to do their job. They “back-up” the emptiness. This is the situation we are currently living in, a situation in which the political system only keeps up the appearances of “democratic values” and “free society”. We still believe that we live in a world of opportunities, but there is no longer anyone who would take on the risk of decision-making. There is only the spectacle of a void.
