“Upcoming Train/Stopped Clock/Untitled Waiting” is a manifesto of the ritual of waiting, presented by four characters in representation of the general public and artists. The ritual, addressed upon life/death and reality/illusion, will be shown by paronomasia within the conversation, by metatheatre, by the interaction among the animate beings (characters) and the inanimate beings (mannequins), and by the embodiment of the sufferings from the ritual itself to accent the timelessness of the action and the ridicule of the action itself.
