Mein Wort ist schwarz geworden [My Word Has Turned Black] is a piece for bodily states in a state of shapelessness. By dissolving the form of the four human bodies on stage, always so prone to become part of the field of narrative and representation, into a multiple sculptural unity that moves in part individually, in part collectively, it strives toward a concretion that plays with and challenges common expectations toward proscenium-stage pieces. Emerging forms provoke associations, but these associations are at once lost in a flow of development, and thus the pieces engages the audience itself in a direct experience of shapelessness, of becoming-shapeless.
