I’m Sarah Kane. I hung myself using my shoelaces. I miss love.
I’m Intershop. I closed in 1989. I miss the smell of soaps and ice creams.
This endless parade of names and things crosses the centuries and the history of mankind, constantly playing with the crucial and the meaningless, with the comical and the dramatic, with the ridiculous and the sublime. The performers introduce themselves as dead people or dead references and edit in real time their brief biographies, describing how they died but basically what do they miss from life. The final text is produced anew by the performers every night, every night Galaxy is different in terms of tone and style.
