Statment of intent

« Dancer and performer, Kerem Gelebek and I have collaborated on several projects since 2008. When I approached him to work on a solo performance, my first desire was to concentrate on the notions of melancholy and exile (notions that are very dear to me, personally). Almost immediately, exile no longer referred specifically to a territory but rather to the self: exiling oneself from oneself. Melancholy, however, remained obligatory. A few scattered objects…

He will manipulate the space onstage throughout the performance, laying down into danced fragments that resonate like haikus, sketches, or notes out of a diary that, together, form a collection of thoughts borne out of movement. Fragmentation, reversibility, stuttering, and suspension have thus become the physical paths accompanying us today in this adventure. »
