In a moment, I will ask you to share with us a story from your daily lives.

A story from yesterday, weeks ago, years ago.

An experience you’ve had that resonates, which you would like to share with us.

We will then bring your story into the space and play with it,

inviting it to become our collective story.

Unravelling the mythologies present within it, present within all of us.

Now, who would like to begin by sharing the first story?

Through an improvisational game of signification, the stories are broken down into signs, which are used to re-codify the body and generate a communal way-of-being. Aiming to excavate and weave the stories’ latent meanings, which are then manipulated and multiplied to become symbolic. By examining how we retell and narrate our own experiences, we can reveal our mythology: A cultural phenomenon which shapes a community’s morals and practices. A “natural” common-sense (and symbolic-order) which alters our understanding of reality and agency to interact with it.

A special thank you to Susanna Ylikosk, nein9 kollektiv, the P.A.R.T.S. SummerResidencies program, Peter Pleyer and DOCK ART, and to the friends and colleagues who came to practice and witness with us. 

Premiered at DOCK ART (DE) in September 2023 during “Blank Check Festival 2” in collaboration with nein9 kollektiv.
