A performance of Italian Futurist ideas

“Beauty exists only in struggle. There is no masterpiece that has not an aggressive character. Poetry must be a violent assault on the forces of the unknown, to force them to bow before man.” – Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Futurist Manifesto 
Mankind's progress is an artistic assault towards an uncertain future. Let's Murder the Moonshine embraces this trajectory and questions the passéist notions of aesthetics that still maintain an iron, yet decaying, grip on modern performance. This performance is a proponent of our environment of digital technological advancement and war in a world that needs to shrug off the soft light of the static Moon.
