This game is a collaborative "lecture", which starts from a clear and personal point of interest as a suggestion to share and develop this content through the different perspectives of the lecture-participants.
On wabi sabi
1) The Wabi Sabi is the beauty of things unfinished, temporary and imperfect
2) Imperfection not as a priori , but as aesthetic possibilities
3)The imperfection is not caused, the imperfection happens
4) The occurrence is the result of a dynamic creative vitality and openness to different possibilities
5) The openness causes doubts and asymmetric ways of work
6) To enable this is necessary a clear initial conceptual intent
7) These requirements allow the questioning of the proceeding, causing new needs
8) Once the needs are determined the shape define itself by itself

- performance scores ready to be performed
- scores to document, reflect and share thoughts behind performance works
- new scores yet to be actualized

Fifteen theses on contemporary art
1. Art is not the sublime descent of the infinite into the finite abjection of the body and sexuality. On the contrary, it is the production of an infinite subjective series, through the finite means of a material subtraction.
2. Art cannot merely be the expression of a particularity (be it ethnic or personal). Art is the impersonal production of a truth that is addressed to everyone.

People active in the independent scene should:
1. try to intervene in wider social contexts, connecting with other groups and networks on the social scene
2. use imagination, not only for their art and works but also to think of new forms of production, process, cooperation and ways to fund...
3. not be bound by their field of work; there is a great danger in feeling secure in our own position of professionals
there are 2 basic functions that need activation during the whole performance:
- describing the fictional performance (FP)
- asking for questions
other functions can be used as support / variations:

- describing the process
- conceptualising the process
- making an ideological statement
- telling an anecdote
- getting personal
- keeping silent
- telling the collective’s history
- showing (speaking or gesturing)
- showing the process
- showing a reference
- define the role of each performer in the FP
- not knowing
