One Thousand Last Seconds

Stories of last one thousand seconds of the end of the world

The screen in the middle of the space displays the countdown from 00:16:40:00 to 00:00:00:00. Voices of many people are heard from the speaker - telling what they would do if the world ends in one thousand seconds. Performers on stage carry out simple and more or less daily acts like combing hair, brushing teeth, reading a book, drinking wine, kissing each other etc. By imagining brilliant, meaningful or sometimes inappropriate acts to carry out as the final possibility ever possible, One Thousand Last Seconds becomes a group portraiture of ourselves who live in this very world
