“Superamas lay into our corporate and consumerist world with esprit and a great sense of fun . . . a masterpiece.” —Der Standard, Austria
In this darkly comic funhouse critique of consumer culture, two men meet a pretty stewardess and begin to flirt. Scenes repeat, slightly altered each time. Perceptions slip. The wages of desire emerge as glimpses of global economics, war, and workplace politics that bubble up when least expected. Set in a dead-on re-creation of an airport terminal cosmetic counter/corporate office suite, this work by the French–Austrian cult performance collective Superamas splices and dices reality shows, soap operas, conceptual art, and Hollywood icons in a wickedly malicious examination of seduction and ideology. A Q&A follows the Friday performance.
