About the performance:
Using other media, specifically Cinema, this performance represents a challenge to the popular meaning and concept of monologue, in which normally a person talks to him/herself.
In this show, a woman builds a dialogue with herself as she changes her seats on two sides of a desk constantly. The live video of the woman is to be watched on a screen simultaneously; as the result, the monologue of the woman turns into a dialogue between two women.
The text is mainly based on “Trust Me” written by John Updike and there are references to “Monologue” written by Harold Pinter, “The Strongerˮ written by August Strindberg and “Geri’s Gameˮ, an animated film by Jan Pinkava.
