How to hammer nails into wood. How to learn to speak. How to open a door. How to show empathy. How to correctly pull on a sock and get rid of all the suffering caused by guilt. Learning is something that already begins from an embryo and continues for decades until the human molecules dissolve into non-existence. We are not born human; we learn to become so. We learn how to turn our obscure biological body of cells into a human being. Pouring the foundation. Cleaning the bathroom so there aren’t any unsightly stains. Brushing teeth at the right angle. Expressing love. Having the right breathing while giving birth and maintaining our dignity on our deathbed. Come. We know.
Performance is part of the Contemporary Estonian programme in Riga “LATEST, that is part of the centenary celebration programmes of Latvia and Estonia.
