TEXT HOME TO 78070 (for free advice, and help with travel documents) is a secret set of assimilation instructions authored by the infamous Romanian crime wave itself, to help all new EU immigrants integrate and endanger the British way.

An invaluable manual for anyone intending to steal a job or two, invisible but omnipresent (just like the Eastern Europeans), it’s notoriously difficult to find though it regularly pops up without explanation. How and when it intends to educate the immigrants in the dark arts remains to be seen, but you better be on the lookout – otherwise you might unexpectedly find yourself sympathising with the enemy, or worse, living the multicultural nightmare.

There There are a 50% Romanian 50% Serbian performance company, conjured up in London by Dana Olarescu and Bojana Jankovic. Their practice grows out of intimate political and social frustrations and revolves around topics that emerge at the intersection of personal experiences and big-picture politics.

Initial idea developed with the support of Giving in to Gift, as part of ‘If you’re not paying…’, a project consisting of 4 audio performances.

Sound: Barry Han
