Performers Lea & Marios arrive from the audience. They look at each other and set-up the computer. Two chairs and possibly one table. Lea sits down, Marios stands up. NARRATOR is not physically present.
Lea Collet & Marios Stamatis collaboration evolves through a range of media such as video, performance, text, and sculpture. They like to use theatre as a method in which they stage the implications of publicly performed affect and embodiment within an emotional capitalism framework.
