Somewhere on the other side of the world a plane is falling from the sky.
You can see it on your laptop. You can watch it happening on Youtube.
You can hit rewind and watch it burning on repeat.
With a new guest performer each night, the accident did not take place is a summoning of hyper-reality. A frenzy of post-truth fever. A yearning for empathy in a mediated world.
