Thursday, October 25, at 9.15 p.m. / Naked Stage festival
Internationaly renowned performance (La Mama (New York), Centre Pompidou (Pariz), ICA (London)) will be presented to Slovenian audience for the first time after 2003 at 6th international festival of improvisation Naked Stage! This time multimedia artist Janez Jansa will join the performer Janez Janša and the painter Janez Janša on the stage. 

An interactive performance Miss Mobile forms a virtual collective of performers, spectators and distant interlocutors which are slowly turned into protagonists of event itself. Miss Mobile questions contemporary constructions of media reality grounded on strategies of intimacy being publicly unclothed. Programmes and TV shows like Big Brother, Jerry Springer or Oprah Winfrey are based on vulgar understanding of democracy as a chance for each and everyone to get his 5 minutes of fame. This highly manipulative programmes turn totalitary and panopticon-like situation into an entertainment that covers up an evidence of extensions to which western society is being controlled. Miss Mobile is a mixture of talk show, quiz, multimedia art and visual instalation on hand and an attempt for structures of manipulative acting of popular media to be turned inside out on the other.
