Listening to the media still makes our ears prick, even when we think we have heard it all. The verbal diarrhoea of political rhetoric boasting with its “freedom of speech” is becoming increasingly obscene. The vulgar political game has become an aestheticized media event. The spin doctors’ verbal distillations are strategically castrating the public, which is turning into a farm for the ideological rearing of an obedient flock. 

Glass Illka is a mellow vocal cord filter of media excrement. Her daily news grind occasionally stumbles upon a grain of sand that gets caught in the wheels of her mind.

The performance can also be viewed on 17 October at 20.00 in The New Post Office.
