FEED MY EGO 2
The multi-personal Feed my ego from 2019 is finally getting its logical sequel. Anja Bezlova, who for many years has wandered the streets and festivals of Europe, is now ready to present to you her latest intimate perspective of the world. By this time, she has yet again fed her ego to the brim, stuffing it with all the stimuli she has come across in her travels. Like the first one, the second multi-personal contains all of her personages. But this time, there is a big difference. Everything that the first part predicted came true. Majda from Mengeš, the aggressive pacifist, was collecting signatures to stop the war. Now we have war. More than 500 signatures were not enough to stop the deluge of absurdities we are witnessing today. Rose, the clown, is now gone, Sugardaddy was released from prison, while Alpha had no troubles selling her arsenal of weapons.
All the questioning of militarisation and chauvinism amounted to nothing. That is why part 2 is all about Alpha. For her, the world has become a fun little globe, where popular hits, referenced texts, manipulations of history and clear visions of the future abound. Feed my ego part 2 is a show that could not have been created sooner than now. It’s a show that pushes you away while it hugs you, and loves you while it keeps smashing everything.
The show will be in Slovene.
