In this work demonstration and performance lecture we used physical material from our last performance Suffering and deconstructed it, narrowed it down into smaller and smaller units, in order to unfold the richness and the complexity in the smallest details. How do we create complex images and ambiguous situations on stage? How can we deliberately compose with the composite and contradictory? Are we able to take into account the complexity and the diversity of existence? We investigated how the performer's micro-level related to the macro-level of the dramaturgy as a whole, and we studied the process of meaning-making. By reconstructing these physical materials and placing them in new contexts, for example with the help of music and images, we wanted to discuss the complex relation between physical action and signification.
