FoMO, mofos!

Collective curating

For this year’s festival edition, Angela Guerreiro decided not to curate the local Hamburg dance scene by herself. Instead, DanceKiosk-Hamburg invited all applicants to come together, discuss the applications, and decide about the program collectively.

FoMO, mofos! Or (Fear of Missing Out, mother***ers!)

From and with Mary Pearson (UK/USA)


FoMO, mofos! Or (Fear of Missing Out, mother***ers!) is a new solo performance, which begins as a series of 5 collaborations with international artists. Each artist travels to Liverpool, and spends a week at my home and in the studio. When the artist leaves the studio, a new chapter of the solo show emerges, which becomes homage and identity theft all at once. FoMO, mofos! (Fear of Missing Out, motherf***ers!) grasps at FoMO: that digital age anxiety that something better is always happening somewhere else.
