The director: Pornography – it doesn’t get any closer.

The script editor: I’ve been there, not that I’m interested, but always only briefly. But I have just read an article about “The art of Kazakhstan as a political project.” That’s more substantial.

The director: And how do you want to do it?

The script editor: On a huge field with the figures acting on it. Big wide patch of grass. And Kazakhs have to be in it, I know one, he’ll make the contacts for us.

The stage designer: A friend of mine, who works as a bone identifier, went to Kazakhstan recently.

Stage designer and script editor meet the bone identifier. He lives in between hundreds of boxes full of bones from a Celtic cult site. He has taken beautiful photos. He kept a diary, too. The script editor writes to the Kazakh actors.

The Kazakhs: Nice idea, but we cannot come to Austria for that long, and at such short notice. And we don’t known the festival or the theatre.

The director: Stray dogs would be great, what’s the best porn film you’ve seen?

The script editor: “The Opening of Misty Beethoven”.

The director: I’ll see if I can get hold of the script.

steirischer herbst: How many spectators do you think would be realistic per performance?

The director: A thousand?!

The director: I want a handball team.

The stage designer: Dogs or handball team, steirischer herbst won’t pay for both.

The Kazakhs: We may have time, after all!

The script editor: Dogs, handball team, a porn script, a bone identifier, and two real Kazakhs. That’ll work.
