Tone, words, terms bring us into movement.
Which sentences or words release which kinds of movements (images)? This question is the starting point for the project transposition. Central is the impact of words on physics, motor activity and perception of the performer/speaker as well as the spectator/auditor. This impact will take form in a choreography.
The choreography transposition is about how words can bias what we see, hear and smell. How will (the perception of) the movements of a repeated sitting down change when I say "I sit down" or when I say "I look at you" or when I say "I bend my spine". What changes when I lay down slowly while I say "I think" or "I die". What happens when I hear a storm and the light gets dark and then I say "I die".

The choreography transposition is about a few words and the space between these words.
Words will transform movements and vice versa movements will change the content of words. It`s about the dialectic between inner and outer, real and imaginary (subjective) spaces.

Intro of the Solo towards the audience: "Welcome! What I will do I call transposition. This is about you and me. It will take 40 minutes and I will do what I say and say what I do."
