Opening: Wednesday 26 November, 6-8pm
Dates: 26 November – 13 December 2014
I have expectations don’t you?
I treat it like I should glance sideways
and hint at its embarrassment then
holy hell realise reality collapses and those were my words!
But some forearmed masochism makes for some honey (you, honey) don’t you see
the terror!! of the love at hand
I flee the scene and realise I have only fled back into the scene
In your face that it can’t look away from you
It cant look away from you
Of an educated subject?
Its all in that safety cry
Intention: that is not what your cry means
Then a scene of the root in itself
warm because it has had many sighs in it.
the sigh is a longing and everyone comes in with their wide
tight pants expecting or else hoping they will go beyond
or else anticipate their becoming as is enough to hold
onto their big pants sighs winking at you hard holding onto that silent pride self-satisfied
sometimes I think you’re just too good for me not me said
but habit might beg that true?
a really really terror voice shaking
hey yelling at me angrily you should have a world globe on your desk
where is your sense of perspective, hm?!
Through a staging of animated scenes, ‘Zugged’ pauses to catch protagonists who succumb to the weariness of their own subjecthood. Proceeding stoically with soggy eyes, these protagonists work sincerely through their own position takings, communicable politics, and sometimes vicious modes of apology.
