Solo – installation dance performance.
It all began with a game that led to stories, to you, to this solo performance and us, just like a collection of images in a photo album.
And that is what I am going to investigate. Game, story, story, story, story, A and B, story and darkness, you, moments of questioning, on the way, backwards, movement, text and movement, recordings, stories, reality and fiction, where the beginning is, where the continuation is, if the end comes, we stay rolling. It all comes together later. Later comes after the end. End comes after part D and then we will see what has happened before, we don't know and we might never get the answers we need. The best way is to ask, not to answer. To have questions, not answers.
