i would prefer doing something else is a theatre installation that deals with the power of the sentence „i would prefer not to“, and examines the contagious potential of subversion. Starting point is the famous short story „Bartleby, the scrivener“ by Herman Melville. Over the course of six hours, sparks of music, narration and texts develop from the friction between two principles: order and certainty on the one hand, and refusal - „i would prefer not to“ - on the other hand. The installation ends in a utopian concert.
In cooperation with Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart.
