Serbia: Autoerotic Asphyxiation („The Delight of Self-Destruction“)

Lora Orlović
October 29th, 2011, starting at 21h

“Serbia: Autoerotic Asphyxiation” is a theater performance by Lora Orlović that is composed of several symbolic socio-psychological lines acquired at one of the central points of national history and mentality: defiant auto-destructiveness. The technique used by Serbia in this process is similar to auto-authorizing asphyxia, achieving ultimate orgasmic bliss by dying – systematic, gradual prevention of oxygen inflow into the brain.

Performance “Serbia: Autoerotic Asphyxiation” had the world premiere on May 21st, 2010, in Gallery MC, New York.

Belgrade’s premiere at O3ONE will vary from New York to the extent that Belgrade is different from New York and will be identical to the extent that Belgrade and New York are identical.
