In “1 poor and one 0” the complex line-up of the BADco. theatre ensemble from Zagreb (consisting of performers, dancers, choreographers, directors, philosophers, etc.) returns to the scene of the first film ever shot – “Workers Leaving The Lumière Factory”: the factory gates. The first moving images ever made show workers leaving their workplace. The movement of the workforce from the place of industrial work into the world of film: the starting point for the problematic relationship between cinema and the portrayal of work.

From its outset cinema tended to leave the manual labor out of the picture, focusing rather on atomized stories of individual workers once they have left their workplace: their romances, their transgressions, their destinies in the crouse of world events. Cinema starts where work ends.

So starting from these initial images, “1 poor and one 0” sets about exploring a host of possibilities of leaving the work behind. What happens when you get tired? When is the work we devote ourselves to exhausted? What comes after work? More work? What happens when there is no more work? What is the complicity between the history of contemporary dance and the history of post-industrialisation?

“1 poor and one 0” is a twofold performance; or rather, more than one but not quite two. While the performers develop the manifold forms of dissolution of the working subject before the audience (part one, On Fatigue), the audience is slowly drawn into a process of transformation (part two, Traduttore): from the popular medium of cinema to the political theatre of populism. A change of perspective.
