Holle / Nguyen / Rebgetz / Wolf

Elegy for Television


English / ca. 90min

According to serious prognoses, the television will have disappeared from households by the end of the coming century. Dauntlessly, the performers Fabian Holle, Baly Nguyen, Damian Rebgetz, and Melanie Jame Wolf intone the “Elegy for Television”. In a mosaic of re-enactments, they look into the ritual of the Television Age, the lost moments of community, the synchronization of neighbourhoods and nations, zapping through individual and collective memories.    Trailer "Elegy for Television"
