If What Could Be Is How Why Not performance, 2017
In this piece everything revolves around a monologue that is repeated over and over again. It literally moves in circles, word by word and sentence by sentence, whereas the theatre space leads a life on its own and is in constant transformation. Every single moment each word is thrown into a new context and in its recurring repetition everything that is being said takes on a different meaning. The spatial metamorphoses stop at nothing: they overwrite and override, obscure or underline, interfere and attack, appropriate and prevent the meaning(s) of the sentences.If What Could Be Is How Why Not raises the question „What do we hold on to, when nothing fits together?“
