Copy Pasta Cut is a performance that draws its material from existing, stolen and imitated material. The performance attempts to understand the other by copying, cutting and pasting. The performance is a theatrical spamming channel, urgently and deceptively structuring the flood of an overwhelming chat. It dwells on what spam and spam messages have to say.

Copy Pasta Cut sentimentalizes, spies and coughs up the vaguely seen. It wonders and eavesdrops, urgently tries to get something out but out comes a bit what will; a medium-sized and perfectly competent onion, mumintroll – dessa blekfeta skogsmonster, heart brrrrr, awooga awooga sound effects, it is actually good at kissing by now because it has been practicing a lot, and then it dries up – even with cream. Is this common???

All text in the performance origins from the Reddit discussion thread: r/CopySpaghetti. Copiospagetti or Copypasta is a text snippet that individuals copy and paste onto the Internet in online forums and social networks (Source: Wikipedia).

The performance is in finnish and swedish.
