Poland: 24 thousand second-hand shops.
Europe: 120 thousand clothing companies.
World: 4 million hands sewing clothes in Bangladesh.
Three artists invite the audience to visit a gigantic European thrift shop full of second-hand fantasies and worn out dreams about the future. The artists use this collage of improvisation and network of visible and invisible connections to analyze the relations between the far, the global and the personal. They performatively investigate the future of Europe. How expensive are joint actions? How can a partner turn into an obstacle? When do the values turn into obsessions?
This performance tells the story about unexpected consequences of joint work, of collective actions, of how the haven turns into a form of oppression, and how the scary turns into the funny.
