History used to take a mostly predictable course until its end, i.e. until the time when something weird began to affect time and the surrounding space. The order based on the coherence of these two notions proved to be transient. Supposedly, if something can break down, it will break down eventually. As it was the case in this instance. The world accelerated, and the multiplied centrifugal force tightened around its tangled structure. Embedded in post-chaos, performers try to re-integrate the shards of the remembered world. To live during an interregnum devoid of truth and order is unbearable. The civilisational tendency to reconstruct order, create improved forms of organisation, and look for homeostatic worlds, promising placidity or at least illusory security.
