Taking as a point of departure an unfinished screenplay by Austrian polymath Frederick Kiesler, Aphrodite's Left Turn was realised in collaboration with four other writers, all of whom have been writing in the voice of one assigned character - the young man, the choir boy, the cat and Aphrodite. Each soliloquy was written without prior knowledge of the other contributions and the narrative and voice developed individually. Read together however, the texts culminate in one multivocal and fragmented narrative, a musical score with Schoeneberg's feeling for chance.
