Wenn & Aber

“[…] This Australian-born, Berlin-based [choreographer] has dedicated her work […] to exploring the phenomenon of suspending disbelief in literature and film. Audiences accept fiction with illogical or impossible-seeming plots because they want to be entertained. Wright’s approach to playing with illusion uses plenty of comedy and slapstick. It is amusing and unpredictable, full of original ideas and fast-paced. […]”


Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung, 8 September 2016

 ​Telling it this way. And once again but differently.

In the meantime the question is: What should be told?

Is it possible at all to tell one thing in different ways?

Or have I spoken too soon? Already written two different stories? Whoever tells something, tries to gain control. Control over something that is not because it was or because it could be or only - perhaps - will be.

 

In film theory the term 'suspension of disbelief’ describes the loss of our distrust, the moment in which the doubts about a narrative can be overlooked.

 

To what end?

To see where it all ends.​​​
