Methods of foreign and self-manipulation are studied and illuminated with likeable performer Jerca Roznik Novak. The impressive world of guides, life-changing events, influencers, gurus and many more is traversed at an immense speed, which, at the same time, might seem like standing still. Is this a fountain of knowledge or disappointing peek behind the curtains? Is being unprepared scripted, or are we preparing ourselves to be unprepared? In a society where powerlessness objectively increases, subjects develop a defensive desire to regain power through manipulating others. The ego becomes small, disappears inside and resurfaces all-embracingly. What image does the mirror of manipulation offer? How do we successfully break out of a narcissistic cycle? How would you react? Do you put the balm on your soul or your lips? A 60-minute piece by SILK Fluegge under the artistic direction of Silke Grabinger created not only as a workshop performance, but also a lecture performance where audience and stage are separated.
