ERROR HUMANUM by Cecilia Moisio
Premiere 14 June 2017, Kuopio, Finland
Error Humanum speaks of how failure doesn’t want to be admitted or displayed. Society teaches us to be survivors and winners, that only succeeding is a positive thing. We learn to hide our feelings, become individualists who never needs others. The survival techniques to cope with failure are unfamiliar to us. Can a seeming failure become a success by approaching it in a different way?
Three strong performers manoeuvre at a speeding pace from one failure to the next: they are frustrated, desperate but also amusing. Error Humanum is an ode to our fear of failure and endless incompetence. Error Humanum is a contradiction between our actions and speech, hilarious determination and a fall into disgrace.
