What is the pulse of the system we are immersed in? What is the sound of life in it? In what way is our work mounted in this rhythmic structure?

Every story has an exposition, a rising action, a climax, a resolution. Every story has an alternative. What is F in the ABCDE system?

“Also among the multitude of disgracing jobs that I did there was the night shift in a plant of lighting structures. An eight-hour execution of repetitive gestures and submissive adapting to the machinery. I tried to fill the monotony of gestures by observing the machinery and the workers. I was wondering what would happen if I pushed one of the switches. I pushed it. The movement of the machine changed. The mechanical arm grabbed fragile plastic structures and deformed them. The production stopped. And we could go home.” - Dok Gregory
ABCDE_F is a concert (inter)diction. About our work. How we work. Why we work. It draws inspiration from the stories of individuals of different profiles, professions and cultural milieus who shared their experience of work with the authors.

Every story has an exposition, a rising action, a climax, a resolution. Every story has an alternative. What do workers dream of? (Saša Rakef, Jasmina Založnik)
