America is a dream and a mare, a state of mind, something to love and hate, a story based on a legal text: the American constitution
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defencse, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
So it begins, this 231 years old text. It is USA. And it is one of history's most influenctial political texts. With American relativism, exceptionalism, and ultra-individualism as a starting point, Espen Klouman Høiner, presents the monologue performance WE THE PEOPLE - a life story from the American Midwest.
Sooner or later we'll hastily follow the white rabbit down the rabbit hole, falling miles downwards into… America! But America is not only a place. America is also an idea, a dream and a state of mind.
