A short piece, neither serious not funny, involving speech and gesture, epic and ordinary, orderly and chaotic.
Inspired by the acronym coined by M. Thatcher (that stands for “There is no alternative”), T.I.N.A. reflects on a situation that brought those premises completely up side down: we moved from that “There is no alternative” to the nowadays situation, where we are submerged by a multitude of opportunities, information, data, indexes, likes...
We claim for the silence, but, at the same time, we are terrified by it.
A reality that provokes anxiety: a condition of confusion that disturbs the subject up to the dissolution of its point of view.
T.I.N.A. does homage to those who are sharing this emotional state.
A tribute given with criticism and irony in order to create a conscious distance to better balance our reality and to come back to a certain self awareness.
