The performance took place in Moscow, within Pavel Braila’s workshop, organized by Vladimir Smirnov & Konstantin Sorokin Foundation.
In the video, the author is sitting at the table.There is a huge bowl of Russian dumplings - a very popular dish in the Russian mountain region of Urals - in front of her. She starts eating the dumplings while singing a sad old Russian folk song – “My mother wanted to marry me off.” There are obviously too many dumplings for the her, but she is supposed o eat them all. It is really dif cult to eat and sing at the same time, so it doesn’t look attractive.
Uniting all in one and having as much as possible underlies a genuine Russian character which causes astonishment and compassion.The song (repeated three times) is endless and the dumplings are endless, and pain (because the girl cannot marry her love) is endless too.
