The piece begins in fictitious factory space, a 25-minute performance. A man read outs text and occasionally holds up portraits of works and walks up to the front of the stage. Slowly woman are introduced into the environment, who as secretaries, walk in the shapes of various letters, and eventually introduce various subjects from the stage.

“2) Man speaking affectionately about the factories brass band
The Brass band was established in the 2nd wave of the factories development.
Its alleged proponent was the weaving mills manager,
who came up with the idea to establish a brass band of the master-weavers.
They supported his idea and, following a fund raising action, bought the necessary instruments.”
