‘HI GUYS!! please, ikke glem meg’ is a performance, an installation, a space where two youtube-bloggers are trying to capture their existences in the vast digital world.
Based on the essay “The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction” by Ursula Le Guin, they will examine what narratives are most often told and create a space where other types of stories can exist.
In the performance, the audience follows two characters who, quite uncritically, strive to preserve anything that might be lost. It is a study of identity, nostalgia and the way of preserving our identities for the future in a digital age. The room is a workshop that is at the intersection between youtube, blog, TV kitchen and archive.
The characters explore how to save different objects and how best to preserve their essence. How do you preserve a memory, feeling or smell?
