Because of the excessive use of strobe lights, fog machine and loud music, we do not recommend this performance for children, people with epilepsy, pacemakers and pregnant women.
Parental Ctrl is a performance-concert about generation Y and their parents, about the escape from reality and the dependence on virtuality, about the inevitable connections and ruptures between generations.
– Hi, Mum!
– How are you, sweetheart?
– I’m ok. You, guys?
– We’re ok too. All’s fine? Work? Did you get the flu? Do you need money?
– No, everything’s fine. Hey, I have to hang up, I’ll call you back later, ok?
– Of course, I didn’t mean to bother, call me whenever you can!
– Ok, bye!
– Bye, darling!
– I love you.
– I love you too.
