Annoyance being an intermediate state that may regress or evolve. Continuing irritation that one day may lose control and cause an aggressive action. Our dearest people may be annoying – an only child, mother, husband, sister. What’s the best way to deal it? To stand it, to get used to it, to abstract away from it paying no attention to it, to talk it over or try to change it together. What does irritation really hide? Is it easy and possible to get rid of it? Why are we annoyed by some people and don’t feel that with other, even though they do the same actions or show similar behavior.The performance is based on triple violence – the domestic one, dubbed by the performers, the one made by the supervisors over the performers that repeat the monologues for 7 minutes and the one directed to the audience who are proposed to listen to the 7 monologues of each of 12 performers for 7 minutes. These components generate “ill eternity”, the vicious circle of violence that can be cut down by anyone at a certain point figuring out the degree of his or her patience.
This is a short version of the video, the full version consists of 12 separate performers mogologs, pronouncing their mogologs for 7 minutes each, looped.
