During the performance, Kudirka turns off the lights but does not inflame any candles. The texts are not accompanied by clarinets but rather by live sound effects played on the computer. Kudirka of XXI century is not a neo-romantic. He is a neo-Dadaist. During the performance, you will hear interactive texts with physical effect, universal texts in artificial languages, texts written by collective minds, the collaboration of human and artificial intelligence, and an almost illegal remix of texts.
