Towarzystwo Gimnastyczne

nothing

nothing happens and we report it

The brand new piece by towarzystwo gimnastyczne was inspired by a question about possibility of Nothing in arts/ performance. The question pretty sensible if we listen to reactions of audience leaving the dance venue – often you can hear them whispering there was nothing going on…. and it was actually about nothing…. What is then this mysterious Nothing? And what if we try to really “do Nothing” – maybe still, as wanted Leibnitz, in universe [performance?] there is always rather Something than Nothing?
