A series of quizzes about the stupidity we live by

 


A short sample of the performance

Stupidity is a term that seems to have great importance in current affairs, but it also seems to be a slippery term and it seems that anyone can call each other stupid according to their own definitions, or claim that each their own particular lack of wit is a radical and anti-elitist activism.

I have noticed however, that the ass seems to be an important bodypart, if you want to explain this stupidity – and if you for instance want to say about someone that they are being stupid you can say that they are just talking out of their ass, or event that they are being an asshole.

That’s the reason why, I literally put my ass on the line in various ass-puppet-theatres – and let this ass challenge audiences everywhere on their knowledge about stupidity and its history, ideologies, potentials and pitfalls.

So far my ass has developed quizzes about stupidities in words, art, economy, hubris and general contemporary and historical stupidities.

You can also book my ass for your party, event, conference or school!
