En lo alto para siempre/Forever Overhead is a performance project based on texts from “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men” by David Foster Wallace.
The lie is that it’s one or the other. A still, floating bee is moving faster than it can think. From overhead the sweetness drives it crazy.
Forever Overhead is a creation based on the story of the same name by the US writer David Foster Wallace. An apparently simple story that describes the emotional journey, fluctuating between ecstasy and calvary, of a youth who decides to jump from a diving board for the first time. A leap into the void that we have all experienced at some point and that, in this case, allows us to delve deeper into the literary and personal world of David Foster Wallace; a phantasmagorical vision, at once prophetic and hilarious, that x-rays a society on the edge of the abyss.
If you wanted you could stay up here forever, fluttering so rapidly inside that you would float, motionless in time, like a bee floating above some sweet substance. https://temporada-alta.com/event/en-lo-alto-para-siempre-basat-en-entrevistes-breus-amb-homes-repulsius-de-david-foster-wallace/
