Event Description

The Concert was performed in the central piazza in Cavigliano, Switzerland on a Friday evening following the first week of training at Pierre Byland, Homo Stupidens Masterclass, 2019.  The Concert was developed around the idea of a musical recital in the piazza. The catastrophe occurs when the star singer peed her pants midway through the performance.  When the two musicians notice the fiasco, they accept that it is a disaster and leave, however, the singer, unaware of her misfortune continues on.

Description of Performance

The Concert was performed in the central piazza in Cavigliano, Switzerland on a Friday evening following the first week of training at Pierre Byland, Homo Stupidens Masterclass, 2019. The pedagogy of Homo Stupidens refers to the clown’s stupidity. The Concert was developed around the idea of a musical recital in the piazza. The catastrophe occurs when the star singer peed her pants midway through the performance. When the two musicians notice the fiasco, they accept that it is a disaster and leave, however, the singer, unaware of her misfortune continues on.
