FORECASTING is based on a collection of amateur videos taken from the world’s largest video-sharing website: YouTube. On stage, a performer skillfully manipulates a laptop on which are shown videos selected to meet the human size scale. The result is a dizzying hybrid experience, blurring the lines between the banality of everyday situations and new modes of narration.
FORECASTING is the third part of the trilogy 'Theory of the performance to come or the only way to avoid the massacre is to become its authors?'
