Utopian Trade Union for the Unemployed No. 2


We think that art should help people.

If you’ve been fired from your job and you’re in despair,

The ballerinas of the Vaganova Academy are willing to give you a helping hand,

And even a foot, and they’ll even give you their hearts.

The monstrous alienation that exists among people will be overcome.

There can be no doubt about this.

The way we move our bodies, like how we feel, can be transformed.

When you’re suspended between spaces,

When you’re stuck between stable structures,

Then your condition is revolutionary!

Reinvent yourself!
