<OTTO> won the UBU prize before its premiere in 2002. Perhaps not everyone knows we were touring with the performance’s studies when we gotthe award; in each further piece there was a hoarding of materials, assembled as a film editing, sequence after sequence. While collecting dates and signs the debut took place on January 16th, 2003. 15 years later, we take up the performance to understandhow much truth is still in a show that sailed the void, making the fall the symbol of a new era. <OTTO> is not coming back like a repertoire resisting to time, <OTTO> is back to question again. Someone enters the scene and falls. Better said, he doesn’t enter to fall, but falls because of the entrance. A fall that could be the only one, in the absolute sense, that could enclose the whole performance, followed by further falls, that could be considered as footnotes, evolutions of that first, archetypical fall. A fall that tries years later to relate to a new generation, to figure out if the breakdown of the early 2000s is still in process, if we are in dust, or if we are on a detached iceberg sailing to other directions. <OTTO> is a vacuum, now, a suspension of the world, to avoid watching, I know everything inside out by now, we are at the climax of the cruel representation of the world that welcomes its own indecent representation.
