The Man Who Isn't There is a live online call: an actress on a stage, with audience, talking through Skype with another actor (located in Moscow).
The russian Ivan and the portuguese Sofia only know each other through Skype, they've never met physically. If she would know a bit of russian, or if he would know a bit more of english, they would communicate better, but because that doesn't happen, they have to use the existing technologies to speak with each other.
The show is about attraction for the unknown, idealization and projection. It's about these actors realities, on internet, without speaking the same language, with different time zones and the obvious cultural difference. The result is an hybrid communication.
Each one of them projects things on the other makes suppositions, a dramatic space filled with multiple personalities: who they are, who they want to be and who they want to be for the others. So they speak about it and they try to stage a bit of it.
When we are online, we no longer exist, we are only a perception. We transform ourselves in a man that is not there.
PS: Falling in love is easy when a person thinks too much: people project on the other whatever they want. But reason says that this is the wrong path.
