How to put on stage something as performative as shame? How to talk about something that eludes words? How to address the audience without shaming them? Shame can speak many languages. The bodies, the sounds, music, images and words speak out at the same time. What they want to tell lies in the overlaps and gaps between the individual languages. They pronounce the subjects on stage and the subjects in front of it in the way that just like subjects evades an unambiguous signification: with pauses, delays, interruptions, twists, hesitations, duplications, echoes. Never are we completely or just simply here, we are always someplace else, where we can believe for a moment we are someone else or dream we are. Sometimes we even act ourselves witnessing our own objectification when the body, controlled by its own subjection to the gaze, has to respond with that which derives it of its words. (Tea Hvala)
