Economy of Pleasure

The Economy of Pleasure is for the ones who usually stand by the bar, even though they long to let loose and dance; the ones who feel ridiculous during collective singing; or the ones who need to go abroad to be able to talk to strangers. This work is for those who have the will and the means to have fun but always settle for ‘a nice time’.

The Economy of Pleasure is a training facility where instructors and visitors exercise in simulated festive situations. Together they confront their longing to have fun, and the hard work that it requires. By the end of the night it is put together to a complete choreography of rapture.

Premiere 2012 at MDT, Stockholm. Produced in collaboration with MDT and Key Performance
