Featuring the projects she presented in October 2016, the artist recalls the open audition held in Berlin where actors were asked to bring a poem that was personally meaningful to them. One month later, sixteen of these poems were recorded in a photography studio in Kreuzberg on 16mm film.
The artist adapted Jerzy Grotowski’s voice training techniques to fill the speaker’s body with his or her own sound waves. Through this method the entire body speaks, not only the mouth, and there is a clear understanding of the poem. This is a further exploration of “thinking with the body” which the artist has explored through previous works just as “Dancer”, “Musical” and “Play”.
