The combined ideas are based on salt and water

Nia’s interpretation is connected to emotional state of mind or rather lost emotional body due to detachment of body and mind and the protection of salty tears as an armor on a dress. ​

By sprinkling salt from a pot back into the Salt Lake I returned some of the materialized experience causing emotional pain, after filling the empty pot with water a new cycle had begun, already protected by armor of tears.

Mariko’s idea is:

When we call it ‘water’ actually it would be never only H2O.

The liquid, which we call water, consists of so many other things and changing the situation at any moment.

It can generate something from it and it could also integrate something else into it.

Like everything else in this world. We recognize things by giving them a name.

But most of the time, we hardly know anything more than that.

The poetry Nia says is her blank verses in Bulgarian also the poem by Katy Lue

“tears of salt,

tears of fire,

tears of hate

and pure desire,

tears of the sick,

tears of the strong,

tears that sing a drowning song,

the bitter taste of sorrow’s salt,

the dampness left on my skin,

the redness in my eyes of guilt,”

She ends the performance in a dress with written text

Components and prescription of nianin

0,05 ml of extract of pure Immortelle in a 1 ml bottle

To be opened and sniffed every time you feel you have exaggerated your expectations, which by itself leads to unnecessary longing and bad decisions

Dosage: 1 sniff whenever necessary to lower expectations and make you feel content with whatever you’ve got here and now, disregarding other people’s expectations and influences in your life

Side effects: None

All you expected and it didn’t give results is the quintessential for prescribing nianin.

By lowering your expectations you give room for the unknown to enter into your life loosely and unprecedentedly, so to lift up your spirits once and for all, done and over with.

Next from Pharmacy of the Unknown Poets:

Sadview — looking back to past events that made you happy, helps you forget about them in a whim. Essential content to meet new people

Nowheretogo — an illusional way of dealing with the world, helps you stay grounded here and now. Essential content to think of small steps part of everyday life, even if it sounds and is boring

Stay tuned!

Performance basics done by Nia:

Perform in your most outrageous clothes doing simple things, like: cutting cucumbers, draining wet laundry etc., in the presence of continuous exclusive support of music by Nincheto
