NEWSFLASH
2004
videoperformance
single screen projection - DVD - 8.04 mins

a collaboration with Jimmy Robert
performed by Jimmy Robert and Emmanuelle Waeckerlé
filmed and edited by Emmanuelle Waeckerlé

In a series of slapstick tableaux we respond with humour and pathos to media manipulation in relation to War and Terrorism - while attempting to make a personal sign of protest.
Behind our seemingly desperate satire and self-mocking attitude lurks a critique of violence and demagogy.

Originally devised as a performance for Berlin International Meetings 2003 @ La gaite Lyrique in Paris -Feb 2003, as a personal response to the war “against Irak” that had just started.
The work feels as timely now as it did then.
