'tonight is the night baby and forever (but no recycling)' by moa johansson

tuesday 3 July | paper dress vintage | 7pm - durational | free

- including an EXCLUSIVE LAUNCH of 'A Rediscovery of Microsoft Paint'

'tonight is the night baby and forever (but no recycling)' is about wanting that pair of red shoes but actually not wanting it because
once one gets them one actually wants another pair of red shoes and it continues like that in fact it never stops
and one is stuck in an endless cycle of displeasure where ‘i love to love you baby’ plays on repeat again and again and again
a body mistakes materialistic desire for sexual desire / she makes love to a pair of red shoes and as she does so she fakes an orgasm because / it is
a reality of never ending wanting
based on sweaty unsexy dissatisfying pursues for something unattainable

in 'tonight is the night baby and forever (but no recycling)' moa johansson creates exaggerated images of obsession and explores excessive emotions around unnecessary items. 

since first presented as part of the SPILL Festival National Platform in 2016, moa has performed 'tonight is the night baby and forever (but no recycling) at various venues around the country. this is a 90 minute finalized version of the piece.
