TV 1: I’m scared of what will happen next


Lights up on a wasteland, literally. A landfill of mud and broken electronics. The ground is crusty and dry, it hasn’t rained for weeks. There are hundreds of mobile phones facing in different directions with their blue lights shining. Some flicker a message alert. The light from the electronics is the only light on stage. There is a blue haze arising from the phones which lights the air around it.

There are two large television sets, lying on their sides. They are displaying an image of two women laughing. Their laughter is joyful and infectious, they are laughing together to the point of tears. We see this laughter for a while. It eventually fades. There is silence.
