A table with a laptop on it and a projector which projects the screen of the laptop, a chair with a woman on it, who is talking and writing at the same time, tracing her thoughts through language, a stream of thought which is nonstop, circumstantial, and is not being more edited than it already is and the necessary other which is you who is reading and listening at the same time, the necessary other which makes her narratable for the 45 minutes of attempting to autotheoretically acknowledge the present which is continuous, a continuous excess of written words and spoken words no backspace pressed while typing the words performance lecture and lecture performance indicate the same thing in any order they appear.
»i like the longer version more than love and anarchy« is the articulation of the present in an ephemeral encounter between performer and spectator.
Antrianna Moutoula (GR, 1994) lives and works in Amsterdam. Primarily language-based her artistic practice spans performance, film, radio, and writing. She studied Fine Arts (BA) at Gerrit Rietveld Academie and Performance Practices (MA) at ArtEZ University of the Arts. Her ongoing research centres around nonstop languaging, an autotheoretical practice in which she performs streams of consciousness by tracing her thoughts through language simultaneously in spoken and written form. The result is an overload of words, thoughts, citations, and memories, that seek their own linearity. By engaging with this practice in different contexts, she aims to rework the confinements of knowledge production within artistic academic discourse.
»like the longer version more than love and anarchy« was developed at the HOME OF PERFORMANCE PRACTICES, ArtEZ University of the Arts.
