“I’m an instant star, just add water” (Benthe Janssen, 14 years).
What if you want to reach the whole world, but your own reflection gets in the way? With a selfie stick for bad grip, Solo by Nas & Jim sings the tragedy of the narcissistic man. An electropop music performance with lots of self-love, self-mockery, hard beats and an ode to the most vain songs of the current pop and rap culture.
Solo by Nas & Jim is a collaboration between Nastaran Razawi Khorasani (performer and vocalist) and Jimi Zoet (performer and sound designer). With a line-up of arrogant acts and selfish songs, this ego-tripping duo tries to communicate with each other by talking only about themselves. A casual electropopconcert about the narcissistic side of the present generation.
“45 minutes of pleasure to watch and listen to. (…) Because even though they make you think about our current online vanity and how we constantly seek confirmation from others, Khorasani and Zoet are performers. (…) That double layer is interesting and the fact that they present themselves in a not-so-beautiful way, makes them sympathetic. (…) Solo by Nas & Jim is funny, musically beautiful and captivating, and offers a confronting mirror.” 8Weekly ★★★★.
“Fantastically produced pop music, great sympathetic performers, a corny atmosphere and clichéd jokes about superstardom. (…) The enthusiastic Khorasani and the undercooled Zoet are a pleasure to watch: the performance is well put together, musically as well as physically.” Theaterkrant
