An empty space. The floor covered with cardboard signs. Word by word, three performers start to uncover a text of mysterious origins. In her legendary work ›Laughing Hole‹, La Ribot fuses performance and exhibition to create a new kind of performative art. During the six hour performance the audience can come and go as they please, while the performers are bound to continue their work in time and space. Absurd like Beckett, existential like Abramovic´, as immediate as a human tragedy.
