Footnote Number 12

Footnote Number 12

NOT AVAILABLE

Spreafico Eckly and Theatre Replacement

Bizarre, Curious, Surgical.

Let’s say, just for now, that 2006 was the last unchallenged moment of western power—this white spectre’s final year of being the given, the norm, the voice...for everyone in the world. This new work by Spreafico Eckly (Norway) and Theatre Replacement (Canada) runs with this assumption and uses a 2006 magazine article from the New York Times Magazine to explore how social awareness has shifted over the last 13years.

 

The piece asks you to observe a creature—a creature whose voice is being repeatedly modulated through digital means—try to reconcile a 13-year-old piece of writing with their conflicted contemporary condition. It’s an exhaustive and meandering task that questions how much a shifting social context should influence the reading of the written word.
