In this work the notion of theatre is reduced in a minimal setting of table, chair, laptop and body. This setting aims to create a certain intimacy with the viewer whilst allowing the interplay between real and virtual presences (media).

Notebook Series is collaboration between a choreographer and a set-designer. The idea of the notebook as a holding structure for a collection of images, text fragments and choreographic studies allows for an understanding of this performance as non-linear, multiple, diverse and potentially without end.

In a situation reminiscent of a lecture or public speech the performance looks at the potentiality and alterity of the human performer.  Moving between the real and the fictional in a clinical deconstruction and disassociation of the human body and its senses, the performance ask questions about belief and the perception of norms.
