Do be do
Fifth and final part of Museum of Postmodern Art Series.
This is the end and a new beginning. We live the era of the monsters, in which the only bravery that is required is to remain humane.
Do be do – MOPMA 5 arrived in today’s world. How to present the present? What is postmodernism in the present? What is carpe diem anyway? In order to get at the here and now we oscillate between the past and the future and like Tarzans dangling in the liane we fly over the abyss that is today.
When we started the MOPMA series in 2012 we knew that we were at a crossroad. Today we know what road it chose and 2012 seems like another era.
Based on the “Do what you saw” method that Oblivia has developed as a starting point for their processes, Do be do – MOPMA 5 will take “Do what you saw” into a performance with six performers. In Do be do – MOPMA 5 “do what you saw” will for the first time be presented in a performance context. Do be do – MOPMA 5 is the live history of an era and the autobiography of Oblivia.
