Waiting for tomorrow
»All the art I liked consisted of bits of melancholia. It is almost like you need melancholia to make it a ‚real dish’.« (Lars Von Trier)
As a response to his previous solo work Can't Get No/Satisfaction - which dealt with idiosyncrasies of the author - Mart Kangro flips sides with the audience now and tries to reflect on his desires as a spectator. On desires that are overpowered by never-ending longing for the sublime. How this thirst for an emotional experience influences one’s perception and criticalness and how vulnerable one might become in this condition.
His new solo concentrates on the aspects of pathos and sentiment involved in mechanisms of representation. When enough is enough and too much becomes too much. When banal becomes beautiful and ordinary special.
