On stage nothing is fixed, not even the stones. In this ever-changing space, the two protagonists, clad in dubious monument outfits, share a common desire for running away and changing their identity. But how would you escape your destiny when it is cast in stone? Slowly, tiny epics – from a rest area parking lot to the tracks of wild animals – take over History. Rather than taking a stance on memorial debates, the performance This Year The Commemorations Won't Take Place sneaks into cracks, inviting us to take other paths in the shadows of high steles.
