The American Premiere of Findlay/Sandsmark newest work, a dance-theater work! Biograph, last year was pretty/sh*tty is made by Iver Findlay and Marit Sandsmark, with Pål Asle Pettersen, Joey Truman and Ruud van den Akker. Also in collaboration and conversation with Young Jean Lee, Victor Morales, Jean Vincent Kerebel and Claudia La Rocco.
pretty/sh*tty meditates on nostalgia and its opposite in technology, making memory movements and attempting to erase everything that has come before and been recorded. With a passing nod to Beckett's Krapp's Last Tape', and a swipe at the age of 'selfies', it turns out that 'the good old times' are not so good anymore.
Our innocence is missing, and by looking back we are trying to find what we lost on the way. It is real, it is fake, I am you, and he is her. Concerned with everyone's obsession of documenting their everyday life,and the feeling of a need to cling on to what just happened. Is it possible to create a nostalgia for the present?
