This is the story of a citizen. A man. Two men. A bit like you. A bit like me. A little different. A little bit the same. The story of a double. The last judgement. Postponed. Communicated, written, shouted, on paper. Adressed messages. Photocopies. For everyone. And for no-one. Drafts, making do. That confuse. Little messages moving through the city. Practices of everyday life. Traces of a life. Remarkable. Thus it is written.
A simple but surprising performance about fiction and reality…
Follow-me will be presented on Wed 5.10 and Fri 7.10.16 at 7 pm in Budatower in the frame of Buda Vista #9.
