Reset

Big and Small (1979)

“Where to? – No reply.” The pairing of a question screamed into an empty room and the depressed reply flung back at herself describes most clearly the condition of the central figure in this piece. Lotte, a woman in her mid-30s, who is constantly on the move and yet permanently stuck in the same place. In ten stages Lotte completes the transformation from a lonely German tourist in Agadir bewitched by a deep voice to an angel rummaging through garbage, wandering restlessly around our cities and believing herself to be one of 36 just people, known by nobody, upon whom this world is founded.
