or something like that ...
Princesses karaoke or something like that... is a sort of theatre zapping on the contemporary world: the karaoke society (from Culture Karaoke by Dubravka Ugrešić, 2014) which, at the same time, lets everybody become a star and a fan, audience and consumer where narcissism and exhibition are symptoms of an individual neurotic necessity to leave an imprint on an indifferent surface of the world. Culture karaoke is collective, frenetic and conformist. It is born from compulsive technological consumerism. In a ever more auto referential society where emulation becomes the most desirable possibility to exist, we ask each other: which are our present references? Which are today's fairy tales, who are our princes and princesses? Princesses karaoke or something like that... is a show that looks at reality in its surreal and visionary expression.
