How may one revitalize the dream of the final crisis of capitalism without burying the bodies of workers in their own ruins? In a historical moment in which the dream of the end of work turns into a nightmare, Francis Vogner places a singular device on stage: a present that no longer seems to belong to our times, a coexistence between the organic and the machinic – which may refer as much to George Miller as to Adirley Queiroz – familiar both to the nightmare of an era’s end as much as the desire for the dawn of another. *(E.B)
