A Collective Arrangement of 18 Minutes is a text piece and manuscript for a play.
The piece was originally made for and performed at a public seminar in Copenhagen
in 2011. It was later edited into a 18 minute long video.

The piece came out of the idea of making a bodily re-enactment of two literary works.
David Harvey’s ’Spaces of Hope’ (2000) and Charles Fourier’s ’Stammefællesskabet’
(1889).

The manuscript combines the appendix in Harveys book ’Spaces of Hope’ with that
of Fourier’s utopian vision for a collective society dated in the late 1900 century.

The play is however performed by a woman instead of a man pointing to Fourier’s
feministic perspectives for a visionary society.  A society in which the members
experiment with the nuclear family structure, sexual behaviour, child rearing, living
arrangements, economic and social forms of engagements.
