Ten performers, side by side, carry out, in a unison, a score of actions suggested by an MP3 player. The track is the same for each one of them: it is a common score, made of daily and extra-daily gestures, of words, stories, inner states and pure presence, aimed at composing a cross-section of a possible portrait. The use of the MP3 player enables an estranging syncrony, which would be unachievable with other means.
The performers go in and out of individual actions by clean cuts, with no time for preparation nor pre-set actions, thus linking themselves resolutely to fragments of their own identity.
“Identity is what makes two things the same thing or what makes them different”.
