“September, 28th, 1990, General hospital Maribor. On Pohorje a rolling stone hit him in his left knee.”
This is the beginning of Primož’s story about his knee injury with an abundant diagnostic and therapeutic documentation. By this day the story hasn’t seen its end yet. Primož is an active dancer, actor and performer with diagnosis: Laesio menisci medialis genus dex; at every rehearsal and performance in constant danger to dislocate his knee, as has happened many times before. His solo is a metaphor for the invalid production of the system, which we maintain ourselves. At his request viewers render him impossible, until he remains without arms and legs. Invalid system can prosper by invalids only. Without crushed knees and elbows one cannot exist nor succeed in the system.
