ON THE RUN video making of

ON THE RUN

The prerelease

Song, and Lyrics, below… but first:

The video making!

Make your own clip, and send it to me – or be part of the actual shooting in 2 parts in Berlin – the street running before the General Data Protection Act hits on May 25th, or/and the asylum and breakout part!

The making of ON THE RUN video about the outbreak from a Victorian asylum into nowadays world, was scheduled for June, after all the WGT madness. But as the DGSVO, the General Date Protection Act, will hit Germany hard in only a few days, we have to do part of it before May 25th! The DGSVO means, basically,  you are no longer permitted to release imagery with strangers on. And ON THE RUN relies on the idea of strangers looking and wondering, and us running away through a crowded environment.
SO WE HAVE TO DO THIS NOW! dress up, and then run around for about 15 minutes. DONE! Coffee! (on me of course) I can offer costumes for inmates, doctors, and scurities, but you are of course invited to bring your own.
Inmates: off-white, grey, neutral coloured, can be ragged and dirty. Bring shoes, if they are not neon everything is ok. Clothes can be everything from noghtie to bridal gown – you´re mad!
Doctors: white of course, I have two lab coats. Props are welcome, from med tools to pliers…!
Securities: Black shirt and pants, can also be knee-length, sturdy boots, belt if you have (I can provide). Bring your weapon of choice from club to steam gun.The actual video, the basement scenes with torturing in :-D, the showdown on the roof, we´ll do all that in June as it will take place on private grounds and there won´t be strangers visible.
You can be part of one, or both.
Das ON THE RUN Video, der Irrenhausausbruch aus dem 19. Jahrhundert in die heutige Welt, sollte eigentlich Anfang Juni stattfinden – aber die DGSVO macht mir einen STrich durch die Rechung! Die Szenen auf der Strasse, mit Fremden, die uns neugierig anstarren, sind Bestandteil der Story – also müssen sie VOR dem 25. Mai im Kasten (und veröffentlicht) sein!
(Als hätte ich jetzt vorm WGT nicht genug zu tun!)ALSO MACHEN WIR ES JETZT!
umziehen, raus und etwa 15 Minuten herumrennen. Das war´s! Kaffee! (auf meine Rechnung natürlich).Ich habe Kostüme für alle da, Insassen, Ärzte und Sicherheitsleute werden benötigt. Aber DU kannst natürlich Deine eigenen Sachen mitbringen.
Insassen: schmutziges Weiss, grau, beige – kann schmutzig und zerrissen sein. Schuhe! alles ausser neon. Du kannst alles tragen vom Nachthemd bis zum Brautkleid – schließlich sind wir verrückt 😀
Ärzte: weiß natürlich. Ich habe 2 Kittel, Requisiten sind auch willkommen, vom Stethoskop bis zur Beisszange…!
Sicherheit: schwarzes Hemd und Hose, die kann auch knielang sein. Feste Schuhe. Gürtel wenn vorhanden. Deine Waffe der Wahl, vom Stock bis zur Steamgun.Das eigentliche Video, das Irrenhaus im Keller und den Showdown auf dem Dach, machen wir dann wie geplant in ca. 2 Wochen. Du kannst, aber mußt nicht, in beiden Teilen dabei sein.

Sneak peek of the results:

 

This is about losing everything you took for granted. And hope.

I‘ve been painting wrong colours – singing wrong songs- writing wrong poems – speaking wrong tongues – sitting on wrong chairs – eating wrong foods – worshipping wrong gods – buying wrong goods

Now I‘m on the run like a frightened rabbit, jumping the bricks of the yellow road, dodging the sun -might be I‘m seen- hiding my face under my load…

Run run run run -run for your life -Run run run -don‘t stop
Run run run run -no place to hide -Run run run -don‘t stop

Hold on hold on! I won‘t stop for you. Stopping is death -Running is hope. There is no goal, no end to this run, running in circles, a life as a lope

I‘ve been playing the wrong games – having wrong fun – asking wrong questions from the wrong men – showing the wrong sex – wearing wrong clothes – kissing wrong humans -watching wrong shows – squatting wrong houses – crying wrong tears – throwing the wrong stones -having wrong fears – carrying wrong guns – shunning wrong class – shitting on wrong heaps -kicking wrong ass

I‘ve done naught but being myself. That‘s forbidden in my world! Do what you ought, stay in the shadow, don‘t raise your voice, avoid the wrong words…

I love you.

What this song is about. You do not have to like it. But you have to know.

This song tries to take the perspective of a political refugee. One who never intended to be political, who just wanted to live their life. But society had a problem with them.
#lgbtq #feminism #anarchist #pacifist #Antifa #intellectual #artist #howcanartnotbepolitical
The video adds the question: What is normal? Is it normal to bend to the rules at all cost, even torture, or is it normal to run? to at least try? And where does fleeing us lead if nobody helps?
Dieser Song versucht, aus der Perspektive eines aus politischen Gründen flüchtigen Menschen zu erzählen. Einer Person, die niemals vorhatte, zum Politikum zu werden, sondern einfach nur ihr Leben leben wollte, ohne sich zu verbiegen, oder zu lügen. Doch die Gesellschaft hatte ein Problem damit.
#lgbtq #Feminismus #Anarchie #Pazifismus #Antifa #Intelletuelle #KünstlerInnen #howcanartnotbepolitical
Das Video fügt die Frage hinzu: Was ist normal? Ist es normal, sich den Regeln zu beugen, egal um welchen Preis – selbst Folter – oder ist es normal, zu flüchten? es wenigstens zu versuchen? Und wohin führt uns die Flucht dann, wenn niemand hilft?
