The Last Cigarette Before the End of the World:
A Guided Meditation
Medium: Chairs, Cystal Singing Bowls
Duration: 20 minutes per session
Imagine this: tomorrow is the end of the world, and today you get your chance to smoke a cigarette, probably to soothe your anxiety. But this is no ordinary cigarette. This is the very last cigarette, before everything ends.
In this performance, the artist will be your guidance, to guide you to smoke this imaginary cigarette. Using meditation and hypnotising techniques, audiences are invited to revisit the past and future of human existence, meanwhile, learn how to “keep calm and carry on” while facing the complicated relationship with apocalypse, dystopia, the age of anxiety.
The artist is not the performer. The audiences are performers for themselves, for they need to visualize the situations in their mind in order to activate the artwork.
