Post No Bills

POST NO BILLS is an exploration of the transformative power of crisis. An ‘arte povera’ performance edging its way into the space where composure is irrevocably lost and the new and unknown barely glimpsed: When the stomachache following the collective Western consumerconstipation has receded. When times have become tough. When ships have been wrecked and the ravaging of the systemic crisis has become chronic. When we can no longer afford to mistake expansion for development. When the choice is either death or change. And when you know the latter won’t happen until you break open the shell, puncture the membrane and scrap the fiction of reality. Right there, we meet the broken and disillusioned human with empty hands. Sent back to square one and free to re-invent the beginning.

POST NO BILLS enters into the series of X-act-produced solos, which focus on various aspects of the human existence. It explores crisis as a creative transformer. And sets off from the Existential Psychology stance that crisis must lead to criticism and not merely be suffered passively.

“ What is left, when nothing is left? One possible answer could be great art – art that has the capacity to transform people. I for one feel changed after an hour in the company of Johnson’s new solo which resembles a mile stone in the crisis art of recent years.” — Kristian Husted,Politiken, Denmark,
