Mobedique Hors Acvé
Mobedique Hors Acvé
A community of those without community, for a community to come. A schizo-scenic video-collage of the disturbing ‘normality’ of Moby Dick.
“Remote pasts meet remote futures. Dancing robots wave to the lonely traveller. Burning fat from whales feeds the citizen-consumer zombification process. Now everything burns! Precarious lodger, we will be in the dark, castaways of a world that does not belong to us. Terrans, in the company of jellyfish, we follow the hunting, the escape, the astrology and the holograms of the Mobedique Whale.
Ueinzz is a scenic territory for those for who the world wavers. Like in Kafka, we make poetic and political transmutations of substance from sickness on dry land. In the set, we are master in clairvoyance art, with notorious knowledge in improvisation and neologisms. Specialists in maritime encyclopaedia, frustrated trapeze artists, dream hunters, interpretative actresses. We are also inventers of pomba-gira, incognita musicians, brewer masters and blossoming beings. Ours are lives lived along a narrow line, experimenting in aesthetic practices and transatlantic collaborations. Community of those without community, for a community to come.” – Ueinzz
Ueinzz have created a video specifically for Episode 10, made from overlays, cutouts, and different situations as they created and staged their play Mobedique Hors Acvé.Read
We think of Ueinzz as a weekly, ongoing practice of sociality, under the sign of theatrical care: an open rehearsal for a play and political future that is yet to arrive, but is brought closer by practicing it here and now. Ueinzz exists within the set of ever-changing relationships between users of mental health services, therapists, actors, so-called psychotic patients, carers, philosophers, and people whose lives hang by a thread. They amplify the flows and worldviews produced by supposed ‘illnesses’ into a theatre capable of reversing power over life into the potential of life. They reveal the disturbing ‘normality’ that surrounds us every day.
We had the pleasure of hosting Ueinzz at Episode 7: We Can’t Live Without Our Lives.
The film is not availble to view in the archive, but reach out to Ueinzz to screen the film.
