"PRELUDE 3 (STARRING PEOPLE SEATED IN ROWS, A, T & M) :
THE LIGHT GOES ON. THE SPOTS ARE HIGHLIGHTING A CHAIR ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF ROW 2.
A PERSON IN ROW 5, SEAT 8, GETS UP, POINTS TOWARDS THE LEFT, AS IF PROBLEMATIZING SOMETHING FOR WHICH WORDS ARE NOT ENOUGH.
THEY SIT DOWN AGAIN.
A PERSON SPREAD ACROSS ROW 4 AND 8 NODS IN AGREEMENT. THERE’S A LONG SILENCE WHERE AN ANSWER COULD HAVE BEEN.
A, T AND M ARE SITTING ON STAGE. THEY ARE LOOKING AT EACH OTHER, THEIR HEADS PERFORMING A NOD, THAT IS NOT ONLY A NOD, BUT THIS MOVEMENT SOME DO WHEN TRYING TO PASS „SOMETHING“ ON TO SOMEONE ELSE, DIRECTING THE ATTENTION TO THE NEXT BODY, WHICH PASSES THE NOD TO THE NEXT BODY. SOME BODIES GREET EACH OTHER WITH THIS NOD, OTHER BODIES ARE DOING THIS WHEN THEY FEEL EMBARRASSED. ONE COULD SAY THAT THEY ARE PASSING THE BALL TO ONE ANOTHER. ONE COULD ALMOST FORGET ABOUT THE SERIOUSNESS FOR A MOMENT.

THE SPOTLIGHTS ARE SLOWLY POINTING TO THE BACKGROUND, HIGHLIGHTING THE WALL THAT IS NOT USED FOR PROJECTIONS. A MURMURING FILLS THE ROOM. DEPENDING ON MY POSITIONING, I FEEL THE NOTCHES SPREADING ACROSS PUZZLED WOOD, THE LEATHER SURFACE OF THE FOLDED CHAIR OR A FRESHLY CLEANED CARPET WITH MY BARE FEET."
