In search of the simplicity lostPublished on April 26th, 2016
Let the simplicity be a neutral term:
simplicity not as in “less is more”
simplicity not as simplicity of mind
understanding not with inflation of words
lightness as unbearable lightness of being
nothing is easy
Answer: Complicity = complexity + simplicity
Simplicity is a collective projection of the participating artists: Urkuma (IT), Lina Rica (HR), Boštjan Leskovšek (SI), Stefan Doepner (DE), Borut Savski (SI).
Projection areas are sound & music, visuals & light, objects & space. Blanc = bianco = blank?
Premiered on Wednesday, 27th April 2016 at 21.00 in C2/ Tobačna Ljubljana.
Before that, from the noon onwards, Jakob invites to the picnic, that will take place at the south entrance to C2. If snow or rain, it will be moved under the roof.
In the tradition of “tout court” (in a vary short time) we have prepared the performance – equally shared by the artists. For the first in a row of similarly conceptualized productions, the title is extremely good starting point. Simplicity is the opposite of complexity. Comparing both, the first brings instant reaction: emotions, understanding. But what can a person say in simple terms – in one sentence? Is it that you only play on existing registers? Simplicity is maybe as an onion – uncovering the layer after layer of complexities. Or the story of the seven veils. Both are not simple anymore. One layer before nothing might be simplicity. Superconductivity.
