Αυτά που ήθελες να πεις
δεν θα προλάβεις να τα πεις
Μίλα
!
Έχω ένα πρόβλημα.
Δεν τα πάω καλά με τα λόγια
Λόγο
λόγια λόγο λόγια λόγο λόγια λόγο
Μπέρδεμα !
Ευτυχώς από γλώσσα τα πάω καλά
Δεν ξέρω τι με πιάνει
κι εκεί που πάω να εκφραστώ
νιώθω ότι δεν μπορώ να μιλήσω,
δεν μπορώ να το πω.
Λόγια λόγια λόγια λόγια λόγια
Απ την άλλη,
μιλάω τις πιο ακατάλληλες στιγμές.
Δαγκώνω την γλώσσα μου για να μην πω
αυτό που σκέφτομαι αλλά δεν κρατιέμαι.
Πφφφ
Χείμαρρος!

Η Γλωσσοκοπάνα

P.S. : Glossolalia (from Greek glōssa, “tongue,” and lalia, “talking”), utterances approximating words and speech, usually produced during states of intense spiritual experience.

Glossolalia is a composition for one female performer in a limited space. A choreographic monologue across media and realities. Projections and soundscapes visualize and make audible the thought processes that are experienced in the psyche of this female character. In an effort to externalize her struggle. She is seen here as an entity experiencing the gravity of her socio-political identity as unbearable. Her body: a landscape of obsessions, calmness, restlessness, laughter and whispers. She has waited and has decided to live on hold. She was stuck in her permanent state and rebelled against it. And now: a confession.
