ABOUT THE SHOW
There’s time before the concert begins, fix your hair, fix your make up, wish for a glass of alcohol, wine would be best, white would be best, to contrast with your best slutty black dress, because if you do something well in life, it’s colours and combing them, and if there’s somethign you don’t do well, that’s everything else. That’s everything else.
A band of terrorists/freedom fighters have disguised themselves.
They’ve got: One drum. One piano. One Violin. Two Trumpets. One French horn. One trombone. One cornet. Two samplers. And a shotgun type Marocchi model 03.
They left the saxophone in Budapest but they’re about to go on so I suggest you give them your complete and undivided attention. They really go off.
Semi-automatic streams of consciousness.
Razor-wire sharp dialogue.
You sons of bitches! You fucking shits! They would’ve said that. That’s what they probably would’ve said. But they didn’t. The massacre didn’t really happen. But, somehow, we all hoped something would happen. Anything.
It happens in J.A.T.O.
