Performance of July 7th on Youtube

part 1 + part 2

The “Tower” is a seven-storey building with lots of small compartments.
301 little men swarm towards the tower from all sides and want to occupy it.
Everybody wants to find a safe place. It’s clear that this is not possible because there are too many men.
It’ll be cramped and it’ll be necessary to share.

 The tower is not only a horror vision of our cities but also a symbol of hope
that the rich West will finally unite and learn to share with disadvantaged countries.
There should be space for everybody.
