WORDS AND SPACE portraits a metaphor of an intrapersonal speech.  A single body of a man in one space, confronting its own “mono-dialog”. Seamless words may or may not form reasonable sentences in the frame of time and are lost and found in the poetry of movement. A presence of individual intimacy and self-realization are the only layers which may lead us to a deeper state of particular conversation. This communication within one or many reveals a vulnerability and authenticity of a moment in the prison of our (own) freedom.
The aim is to project very personal experience of the interpreters whom joy and maybe a struggle appears to be in the present of “naked” beauty and non-violent reality.

WORDS AND SPACE projects moving images of a painting or a book full of floating stories, it’s personal, intimate and poetic.
