Jessie Marino: Nice Guys Win Twice (2018) for ten performers, video and live electronics – World Premiere / Commission of the Darmstadt Summer Course et al.
Constantin Basica (Video)
In her new full-length piece Nice Guys Win Twice, American composer and performer Jessie Marino reinterprets political discourse in an artistic-poetic manner. Nice Guys Win Twice is based on the phenomenon of so-called “fake news” and poses the question as to how “alternative facts” influence our everyday reality.
The musicians of the experimental Danish ensemble Scenatet become performers in a different “narrative” of reality, one based on the interplay between language, gestures, objects and symbols, film and music. Jessie Marino and Romanian video artist Constantin Basica create an accompanying setting in which “narratives” disconcertingly alternate between reality, an incorrectly conveyed world, and dream.
