I just want you to be happy
video, script based movement piece (02:24min)

I just want you to be happy is a work about our difficulty to connect with the other. This other can be a person, a people, a state, a concept, basically anything outside ourselves. Our limitations are often conditioned or self inflicted, and mostly bound to complicate any effort of real interaction. I just want you to be happy illustrates the encounter of two anonymous, masked characters that could belong anywhere or nowhere in nowadays utopian (ir)reality. Deterritorialization is the passage from a space whose code is known into a new space, where that code loses its meaning, so that things become unrecognizable for anyone attempting to use the code that was produced by the previous territory. Interested in working with language and systems, this piece plays with movement based on rules in order to mimic this confusion of code.
