Stara mestna elektrarna – Elektro Ljubljana
And what would you be willing to give up?
Expanding Energy is not only a one-day conference, but a dance performance, devious political theatre and a concert at the same time. With participating musicians from the group Einstürzende Neubauten & Candy Bomber, actors from Forced Entertainment and lots of volunteers. Davis Freeman, a performance artist who has been working with Forced Entertainment, Superamas, Meg Stuart and others, started his own company Random Scream in 1999. In this event, Freeman will delve into our obsession with energy. If future generations and life on Earth are to be preserved, then we will eventually have to start doing things differently. We can all agree on this, and yet everyone just sits around and waits. This isn’t a classic performance about ecology as much as it is a collage of social issues, the economy, political incorrectness and physicality. So… what would you be willing to give up for a better future?
