unaussprechbarlich again


Next performance Unaussprechbarlich
Friday October 14, 21h, PATHOS Theater München in the festival “Magdalena München – In Between”.

The almost random mix of languages (there could be even more, others etc.) seamed to me very European as well as very contemporary. We today live a global Babel everywhere and anytime, in particular on the web and in the social net-works. A basic understanding of foreign languages is not any longer a pre-condition to communicate with each other. We all use on-line translators and Asian people use latin letters to be translated into their letters on the screen. So in your performance the mix of languages and the mix of representations by different media (pronunciation by humans and machines, typing, screening, projection, singing, etc.) transforms the global Babel into a piece of art. This piece of art is fluid, unstable, a collage of mixed layers, intuitive, enlightening, (un-)decodable and funny.

Pendant l’exposition Training for A Better World d’Annie Abrahams au CRAC LR les médiatrices de cette exposition ont écrit des phrases collectées auprès du public sur un mur de l’exposition. Ce texte a été photographié et puis effacé. Sa retranscription sur papier était à la base du travail pendant la résidence de 4 jours avec ces mêmes médiatrices.

Sais pas comment m’y prendre, sais pas Don’t know how to tackle it, don’t know

Faut peut être pas m’écouter You probably shouldn’t listen to me, shouldn’t listen to yourself
je voudrais vous toucher – toucher vers vous, vous I would like to touch you, to touch in your direction, yours

je voudrais I would like

tu voudrais you would like

me toucher, touchez moi
TOUCHEZ MOI to touch me, touch me, TOUCH ME

Vers toi, de loin In your direction,
from a distance ne me touchez pas don’t touch me
ne vous approchez pas, ne frôle pas mes limites, don’t come close, don’t feather my limits,

Chaque parole m’éloigne de toi Every word from you estranges me more

je te touche, tu me touches, au-delà de l’espace on se touche, pourtant mes doigts ne sentent rien I touch you, you touch me, we touch beyond space and still my fingers don’t feel a thing
… non touché, je te sens, toi, toi qui es loin, toi qui es partout, qui t’étales derrière et même devant …not-touched, I feel you, you, you far away, everywhere, you who spreads behind and even in front
toi dans moi, je te touche you in me I touch

lentement, avec attention, sinon je te perds slowly, with attention, if not, I will lose you

quand je te touche, tu me touches when I touch you, you touch me
il, elle me touche he, she touches me
le monde me touche the world touches me

Ce monde qui est trop violent, trop vulgaire This world that is too violent, too vulgar

Ma peau est déjà le dehors My skin is already outside

est déjà … is already…

ma chair, ma chère, mon cher my flesh, my dear, my dearest

Ne me touchez pas DON’T touch me

pas pas pas don’t don’t don’t pas PAS don’t

touche touch

je te touche I touch you

je te touche I touch you

I hardly dare
je n’ose presque pas
