Speed

 

Speed

If life is advancing at an amazing speed, why are we still learning about it the old-fashioned way? A day in a life of a building. The facade is cut so the audience can peep into the separate appartments. Short scenes are running separately and simultaneously. The spectators are zapping from one room to another. Little stories about sex (or the lack of it) and violence (real and imagined) are being told with no particular order or a coherent narrative. It is a mishmash of scenes put together by the accident of the moment.
