Each repetition is punctuated by a deadline. According to Kandinsky, lines are made out of the accumulation of dots and the reduction of space separating them. The acceleration of deadlines creates the Deadline, made of “dead sound”, according to Goeyvaert's idea to create a neverending predictable sound, out of temporal development and therefore metaphysical.
Burn-out makes you enter in a liminal state of mind, where you are out of body and therefore without subjectivity. In a system of values where production is the aim, efficiency is the black hole of all desires for a perfectionist individual. Srećko Horvat explains how we lose the ability to fall in love because of the “penetration of economic reasoning in the most intimate sphere.” If hands are deprived of any sense of caress or tenderness, but only seen as a tool for work, life is sucked up out of them until the moment when they freeze.
Originally, a deadline was a line drawn around a prison beyond which prisoners were liable to be shot. Now as Foucault writes “discipline becomes internalized” and power is exerted over the body “without taking as much action”, and this over generations; from the grandfather to the father to the son. The remaining question for the son is how to escape it. This performance is an attempt to create a liminal space before the one of the burn-out, a transition for deep change. As Slavoj Žizek says, in order to change fate “every one of us has to change so much that we will hardly be recognizable as the same person in the end.”

Andro Manzoni (sound, light and performance)
Andro Manzoni is a sound artist that explores acoustic phenomena, auditory perception, and the interaction between artists’ personal agency, ability, and perception and their artistic interpretation. His current focus is to develop and test a new automatized method of directing multidisciplinary performances that will be more inclusive of the different media used on stage while enabling a different interpretation of content with each performance.
