"Two women arrive on stage, slickly dressed in engineered slacks and tops the colours and coolness of cassata ice-cream, smooth and tasteful. They begin a gestural Q&A: body ripples, hand thrusts, enquiring head tilts, responding to each other with complicit smiles."
Oonagh Duckworth / Springback Magazine
REtransLATE is a performance about communication and (mis)interpretation. The point of departure for the creation was to translate the different aspects of communication beyond words between the performers, though starting with personal stories.
One could wonder if in the end there is meaning in understanding what is said or if meaning is to be found in the spaces between what is said, which one might never be able to understand.
One listens and perceives. In the transfer of messages and stories from one person to another, one is never sure where the loss occurs on the one hand or where other dimensions of meaning tend to add up.
One would assume that any occurrence of a particular message gets transformed by our body, as much as this personal story is enhanced by a broader historical and cultural picture. In REtransLATE, the performers question the procedures of listening, interpretation and extraction in communicative situations - leaving the audience with the core of the matter: translating that transition.
