I AM LUCKY WHEN I AM NOT DISTRACTED THIS TIME
The performance I AM LUCKY WHEN I AM NOT DISTRACTED THIS TIME dwells upon the conceptual and political tensions between ‘attention’ and ‘distraction’. Another person has the agency over the sound of Luca's voice and distractively changes between different tranformed versions by pressing buttons and altering frequencies on stage.
The performance is text-based and initially written in 36 separate footnotes that serve its title. It interlaces statements and thoughts around privilege, trauma, and institutionalized oppression. By giving the text’s footnotes most attention, Luca makes a political gesture of moving the margins to the center. This is, in many ways and on different levels, a necessary and urgent queer move.
