Berlin based artist Jeremy Wade shares with Zodiak's audience a new project called Death Asshole Rave Video.
This body will be a corpse, the universe will eventually go cold, and maybe we are already dead. So, let's say yes to death; let's celebrate. Who said that death is a bad thing anyway? Let's let death have its say. Maybe the end is just the beginning? Maybe we have to die die die in order to fully wake up to the present circumstances of our reality?
Part lecture-performance and part concert, Death Asshole Rave Video is a machine made out of movement, sound and words that interrogate death and the agreements we make as a society.
If all of the agreements we have made are either breaking or already broken, then what's next? This piece experiments with vehicles for experiencing different deaths - death of theatre, value, sense and attachment. It's time to die!
