At the last minute, Zoe Barcza looks directly into Melanie Bonajo’s eyes and asks her kindly:
“How many hours a day do you work, darling?” ... as if this century hadn’t happened yet.

Lars Holdhus sits across from Chris Coy at a local 24/7, stirring his cold coffee. Five
breakfasts later, one quick fix, a thousand years.
Thomas Jeppe, Martin Kohout and Piotr Łakomy join the table in slow motion.

On the day of summer solstice, Tan Lin stands aside with Petros Moris at his side, lighting his cigarette. We all dance together without knowing the dance moves, but knowing the music. Without needing to talk. Raphaela Vogel, Niko Princen and a mass of flowing bodies at the brim of dusk. Weaving in circles and intersections, wearing name tags that shake too fast to read.

Harm van den Dorpel is about to tell a joke about waiting.
