NE MOSQUITO PAS - SIMON VANSCHUYLENBERGH

The neo-liberal ideology that dominates our society is marked by a pursuit of success. But this pursuit generates more losers than winners. These losers are often made or make themselves invisible. In ’Ne mosquito Pas’, performing artists question their own relationship to success and failure by working with elements they themselves experience as ’failing’ in their practice. They explore ideas and performance material that ultimately never made it to a performance. The ’deleted scenes’, in the broadest sense of the term, from their previous works form the starting point for a short (solo) performance in which they perform a negative (un)appropriate ’second-hand’ version of their artistic practice, in which a categorical distinction between good and bad taste is declared unusable. The accompanying motto is: "If you at first don’t succeed failure may be your style" (Quentin Crisp).

Solos by Sophia Rodriguez, Hanako Hyakawa and Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe.
