Daily I search, now here, now there my wandering takes me Countless times I have probed every highway and path;

Coolness I seek on those hilltops, all the shades I revisit, Then the wellsprings again; up my mind roves and down

Begging for rest

F. Hölderlin, «Menon’s Lament for Diotima»

With the help of Friedrich Hölderlin’s poetry, and influenced by Andrey Tarkovsky’s movie Stalker and Arkady and Boris Strugatsky’s novel Roadside Picnic, Blitz wants to build their next production  6 A.M. How to disappear completely as a science-fiction odyssey.

6 A.M. How to disappear completely is the story of seven people that gather at the darkest hour of the night, insistenly performing mysterious duties as workers would do in a construction site, trying to invent a new poetic utopy, a new scape/disappearance from History’s waiting room where we have found ourselves for years now.

It’s 6 A.M. and the new day is coming. 

We are gathered here tonight as if in a city. Since the city has been wiped out, we bring our own.

Better yet, we don’t have to bring anything to this party; we make up our own city as we go.

We build it up as we build ourselves up.

Once a citizen has been expelled from the city, the citizen becomes the satellite city.

Then two citizens together make a metropolis,

and three citizens together make a country and four citizens together make a world. 

Vito Acconci
