Tableau Doublé


Sayaka and Jenny are walking through the desert, they are very thirsty. Jenny kills Sayaka, then she becomes Sayaka´s dog.

"Tableaux Vivants" are old parlour games, in which paintings are re-enacted by actors for the spectators to decode and recognise. For TABLEAU DOUBLÉ the rules of this game have been modified. Using numerous pictures, photos and film sequences as source material, the smallest movements of the performer's bodies create new images and the moment of decoding is held back.
