Lisa Lie / PONR
26+27 May @ 19.00
Is it normal to feel this way?
The moment I am no longer filled with euphoria, life turns insufferable and I just want to die. This sorrow is too big and I’m too small, and time doesn’t work.
I CLONI is the edge where everything starts to dissolve but you keep on talking. All we can say for sure is that if there is life after death, it is just as mundane as life, maybe more intensively so. There will be more blood and screams than in any movie. Our feelings are too strong and too many. We believe in what can neither be seen or be kept at bay. We try to rattle the wails separating dreamers from the dead. Learn to appreciate life before you lose both your legs and learn the hard way.
Shall we join hands and contact the living?
