Radical, from Latin origin radix (root), refers to describing a person or a movement striving for thorough transformations and reforms.

What makes someone ready to cross the line? When does it seem reasonable (or even necessary) to violate the law? Is it when we feel that we’ve been promised something, and then been let down? Is it when we lose faith in the police? Is it when we start to suspect the motives of the elected? By applying psychoanalytic models of co-dependence on the relationship between citizen and society POSTE RESTANTE aims to better understand our political feelings.

DESPERADO is an immersive performance piece about devotion, fear and hurt feelings. It is about the end that justifies the means and boundaries that are trespassed. The performance takes the form of a protection program, a discrete messenger that aims to speak to our potentials of resistance as well as urging doubts. Within safe conditions you are offered an opportunity to take a closer look at the relationship between you and society and thereafter formulate your own radical potential.

In DESPERADO contemporary political theory meet psychoanalytical models for love and devotion. The performance deals with deeply complicated questions on how trust is negotiated and what happens when it gets damaged.

”Are you afraid? Discouraged? I’m waiting outside. You will know it’s me. I’ll look ordinary. Wearing an ordinary jacket.”/DESPERADO
