We faced the translation of this book from the position of the amateur; from our subjectivities and as a trigger to continue thinking together. The translation of this book is an act of love. Love for a way of doing, saying and thinking that catched our attention at the moment we met Mårten Spångberg and at the moment we later read this book. The fact of translating Spangbergianism into Spanish is the opportunity to approach and expand these ways of thinking and doing, that gave us so much pleasure, to others. As the Portuguese writer María Gabriela Llansó says: "I think that where there is pleasure, knowledge is near.”

This book is a performance. It was put together over sixty-four days as a sort of rehearsal, during which every day resulted in a showing [forbid them] in the shape of a blog-post. It’s material, form and content is the result of a daily practice, aiming at two minor issues - to change the world [permanently], and second to find a way out of our present predicament [FFW apocalypse] concerning dance and choreography but also capitalism in general [why be modest]. It’s one hundred and something pages of hysteri- cal accusations, oversized banalities, slamming of already open doors, over the top categorical statements, unmoti- vated mood-swings, cheese making and paranoid [in the good sense of the word] arrogance.
