‘Me and a fly in an empty studio‘ explores the possibilities of language and imagination, by proposing to make a choreography with only one sentence. It plays with how this sentence works when it is written, voiced and heard, in different ways, what does it construct, how and what it creates when deconstructed.
Imagination works in favor of opening different spaces for perception for the audience. Here, language is used as rhythm which is one of the ways I explored as a choreographic method, as I don’t aim to create meaning by representation, but rather meaning is constructed through rhythm and the use of it.
In terms of content, the text alternates between the proposition of the aforementioned imaginary choreography, and an autobiographical narrative, within which I describe the struggle of my early years to come in terms with the competitive logic of the market. Here, a tendency towards an ethics of ‘care’, in which process is valued more than the end product, is evident.
