Is it better with Headphones?
Three persons in a room. Memories. Someone is outside. A hidden soundtrack. Dialogues. Headphones. Unknown characters. Silence. Actions. Fragmentation. In/significant actions. Cables. A story that never ends. Dubbing. Movement. Reality. Transcription. Memory of the bodies. Microphones. Synchronization. Images. Speakers. Stills. A blond woman, a dark hair woman. Sounds. A vacuum cleaner. Descriptions. A group of men. What are you doing? We don´t stop here. A meeting. A shot. Temporalities that overlap. A police car. Fiction. The fear. Music. A script.
In this work fiction meets reality, gender is an on going topic and characters rebuild memories through text, actions, movement and sound. Is it better with headphones? is based on the soundtrack of an iconic mystery film and examines the intersection between identity, meaning and temporality.
