Waiting for Superman
A literal theatrical experiment
20 November 2015
In cooperation with the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television, University of Ljubljana
A theatrical experiment presented by A.B.S.I.N.T. will draw on theatrical attempts on how to explore communication and its conjoined Siamese brother ̶ incomprehension. The authors of the experiment will focus on exploration of patterns imposed by social agreement, and on how these ironically detach us from the core meaning and make it impossible for people to be genuinely connected. Are people co-shaped and presented by words that are used as foundation of their communication, or is there something hidden, our true personality that we never allow to surface? One does realize, and very often too, that one’s thoughts may be best expressed when they are not expressed at all. What is the source of (in)comprehension? What is it that disrupts comprehension, or, conversely, what fosters comprehension? What is it that is conveyed and comprehended?
