And so on and so forth. A phrase that suggests that something may continue endlessly. If we have enough imagination … Or is it a metaphor for the tedious repetition of always the same? Or does it depict the moment when the mind is so weak and drained that it can only sigh "and so on and so forth”? And somewhere here, at the beginning of something that cannot be reached with the mind anymore, begins the performance.

"Ladies and gentlemen. His Majesty the Stage is ready to start his royal breakfast. Which mortal should we place in the centre?” The stage starts charging with images of endings, which pile up on top of one another. A parachute failed to open. A torpedo speeding towards a ship full of immigrants. A deer lying in the middle of the highway. The oxygen is cut off. The last penguin floating on the last patch of ice. Passengers falling from shot down airplanes. And so on and so forth. These are the stories of finality. Absurd and senseless, tragic and comic, fictional and real, believable and unbelievable. The only thing six performers from Finland, Great Britain, Iceland, Poland and Slovenia can do is to remove the corpses and grab for the last traces of meaning.

The performance is the result of a cooperation between the international performance company Oblivia from Helsinki and Via Negativa Ljubljana. What connects both groups is that each of them fosters its unique form of performing, bound to a constant reduction of the most basic performing language and strategies of staging.
