The experiment:
An audience. Two performers. One take. Both performers take on two predefined rolesStefan Fricke is given a list of questions he can ask which are the type that a psychiatrist asks his patient. However Nirmala Salom can not speak and is unable to answer with socially accepted forms of speech. She remains in a preverbal state during the performance. The resulting dialogue develops into a composition, reflecting dreamlike expressions of madness, trauma and identity.
