The author uses the texts of Kafka and Shakespeare to try and open a specific view of the various concepts of modern social and everyday world, using the body as well as video and sound manipulation.
Who is Hamlet and who is Ophelia? The question that is answered from various viewpoints. The performance is an exhibition of the emptiness of communication; through a dissolving linguistic structure it explores emotional constellations that we recognize in different social archetypes. Video and sound manipulation are used to layer slight variations of the process taking place. The audience is invited to take part in the deconstruction of the relationship between an actor and the text and thus to further deepen the chasm. The Kafka and Shakespeare fragments are thus shown as fundamentally dissociated from the physical performance. Disquiet as an absence of the permanent.
