THE QUEEN’S PEACOCK
by Dorota Masłowska
“Queen’s Peacock” is a protest song about collective manipulation. Everything in this performance is told in a language that arises error known from hearsay, dwarfed stereotypes and pervasive seriousness of our language. That’s how we speak, the media space messages and slogans – which became a tool of control in the age of rapid information – is coded is such a language. We wanted to make the performance of unconstraint, of intoxication with nonsense of sounds and of a dream of a new community of a language whim.
