WHEN HELEN SCHOENE WAS A DANCER
SHE USED TO REPEAT HERSELF ALL THE TIME
new revised 2014 version
A set of questions and half answers, of beginnings and appendices, of purposefully unmade decisions and open ends examine an unsteady love affair with dance as an art form. The audience is called to exercise their agility in recognising possible ways of reading the overlay of writing, voice and movement. Hereby the structure of a book forms a means of orientation and binds the overflowing material. A question arises at the end: Is Helen Schoene object or protagonist of the plot?
