Cheap temptations are just what they seem. They don’t disguise anything. Finally it’s here, nothing more than empty amusement. You see it and now you’ll never be rid of it. And it’s what you wanted. “Hooray!” you yell with relief in the moment of ecstasy.
What now? What happened next? After you’ve seen it? Be careful! Every day you emerge from your bed and stick your head under the tap – cock-a-doodle-doo! – it’s a new morning. With wet hair you get ready for a new day. What do you think of first? Cheap temptations! Well whatever. With anti-dandruff shampoo you wash the attractive secretary from your hair. Reality is there outside, you tell yourself; I’ll go outside and immediately forget about her. But it returns to you in shiny storage closets and in the looks of fellow citizens, in the reflections of their gazes, in the glare. It’s everywhere. You don’t know where to look. You try to stop it... You start to run, but you run towards it. Noooooo! You take a quick look, and then you give up. It’s what I wanted and now I have it. And we have you.

A performance that we will try to sell you at a good price so that you don’t notice it.
