Self Accusation

Self-Accusation, originally made for the Club Guy&Roni’s Poetic Disasters Club, is a sly and ironic attack on moral guilt. A piece based on the play by Peter Handke baring the same name. In Self-Accusation the main character accuses himself of adhering to a range of restricting moral codes, decimating his socalled free will. An image based, interdisciplinary dance peformance with live music and spoken word. A piece that examines collective shame, the guilt felt for being human, dessilusion, regret and failure.  About mortality and the attempt to become something more than what life has to offer.
