The idiot shouts something that has to be shouted to be hidden and something else becomes invisible in order to be able to be seen. That is the theme of the performance. Someone is spastic and comes from Africa (not the continent). One of them is desperate but you don’t notice who. In the middle she makes yellow birds out of paper and a lot of people imagine that they fly. This never happens but happens two times, and it is not irritating because it stops before. It is present-day. But how do you know they are not rehearsing?

Live performance at Stralau 68, Berlin, September 20, 2007.
