Hegemony on the Summits of the Seesaw

Hegemony on the Summits of the Seesaw - Observator cultural, 2 March 2001

One of the therapeutic functions of the performance taking place at the Toaca Contemporary Art Studio is the exceeding of the "first-fame syndrome," the way it was defined by Gibb brothers in the 70ies:

1. You want to be famous; 2. You suddenly become famous; 3. As a result of the excesses and dizziness caused by the heights, you rapidly fall back... or worse.

Here are Andrei Ciubotaru and Theo Pelmuş, two protagonists in quest of immortal glory, stimulated, like any youth, by mass media, and Ştefan Tiron, a median term - the three of them in a possible relationship of selfundermining or of benign cooperation.
