A video inspired by the life and work of photographer Tina Modotti (1896-1942) with actress Dajana Roncione.
Supported by KML Fondatione.
The performance is split into situations/tableaux. These written scenes are based on Modotti’s life and work, on the actress words on Modotti and on herself, as well as on the director’s own perception of Modotti and Roncione.
It takes place in a theater on a stage and in the spaces surrounding it. The actress is put into each situation without preparation in order to avoid playing an already built fictional character.
The performance explores the ambiguous and double character that is in between the actress herself and a projected fictional character, « Tina Modotti ».
This character is « at the edge of the double ».
