Song About The Futility Of Human Endeavour

Duration: 6.30 min.
Format: Video
Year: 2006

The woman is performing the text “Song about the futility of human endeavor” from the Threepenny opera (1928) by Berthold Brecht with music by Kurt Weill. She performs the text with great empathy and adds her own interpretations during the reading. The original text is about vulnerable people in the society used by unscrupulous people with only their own best interests in mind. The piece was produced when Tova Mozard was invited to do a workshop at a daycare center for disabled and homeless people, victims of rape and addicts. The participants were allotted texts which they analysed and interpreted together with the artist.
