Act I of project “Two Act Performance with Intermission”.
Premiere 23.04.2009 Student Cultural Centra/SKC, Belgrade
This is pseudoscientific voyage on which a group of nameless artists work on the exploration of identity within the works of an artist. The process of art creation which is not theatre nor is it dance, has a phenomena of disbanding of humanity. This phenomena is being analyzed, especially the subjective experience of it. With the help of a new Muse, Terpsichothalia, the synthesis of Terpsichore and Thalia, new MIMART projects are born.
Like in a computer game, one reaches levels, and the main ``character`` is the artists-researcher. The transfer to a new dimension, the new space is a higher level in which one has to overcome the obstacles like in one’s life. On this journey one questions oneself: explores, criticizes and provokes the viewers, by putting them in the position of a game player.
In the process of creation, an artist undergoes a laboratory, through self activation in individual mythology, through struggle and sacrifice, sometimes even war. The artist is exposed to hundreds of influences of the Muses and Mephisto, and he is judged and surgically stitched, and in the end there is an absurd situation in which the artist eats himself, actually he criticizes himself and judges himself.

``... In `Memorandum` the central position takes a group of nameless artists who analyze their subjective experience of the identity research in the genesis of a exploration process which is neither theatre nor dance. They seek the help of a new Muse, Terpsichothalia, which is born from the synthesis of the muse of Dance, Terpsichore and the muse of theatre Thalia, amazingly performed by Rita Gobi, special guest from Hungary. Out of this ``help`` new projects of Nela Antonovic and MIMART will emerge, and it truly is a privilege to accept cosmic energy, better yet, a privilege to wander through the endless spaces with them.``
