FIRST IS THE WORSTPRINT THIS PAGE
First is the Worst is an endurance storytelling performance with open doors. (This means that during the period of three hours, the audience is free to come in and out on specific moments). Once inside, viewers are immersed in an evasive narrative of which the basic frame constantly seems to be shifting. Deeply rooted in the structures used in jazz music, the narrative is built according to the same logics of arrangement — the use of tonalities, dissonances, changes in rhythmic patterns, and in complex compositions of discourses. Full of dramatic moments and balancing on the border between fact and fiction, the story never seems to come to a close. On every cliff-hanger, viewers are invited to make certain decisions: whether to stay and accept the fragmentation of the plot, to leave and deal with their own curiosity or to engage in making associations to the completion of the stories.
