Sais pas comment m'y prendre, sais pas Don't know how to tackle it, don't know
Faut peut être pas m'écouter You probably shouldn't listen to me, shouldn't listen to yourself
je voudrais I would like
me toucher, touchez moi
Vers toi, de loin In your direction,
chaque parole m'éloigne de toi every word from you estranges me more
je te touche, tu me touches, au-delà de l'espace on se touche, pourtant mes doigts ne sentent rien I touch you, you touch me, we touch beyond space and still my fingers don't feel a thing
lentement, avec attention, sinon je te perds slowly, with attention, if not I will lose you
restez, touchez, ne partez pas stay, touch, don't leave
quand je te touche, tu me touches when I touch you, you touch me
Barrière Obstacle Obstruction Hindrance
Ce monde qui est trop violent, trop vulgaire This world that is too violent, too vulgar
Ma peau est déjà le dehors My skin is already outside
est déjà … is already...
ma chair, ma chère, mon cher my flesh, my dear, my dearest
Ne me touchez pas DON'T touch me
pas pas pas don't don't don't pas PAS don't
je te touche I touch you
je te touche ! I touch you!

ReadingClub online performance series : proposes a text and an interpretive arena to 4 readers. These readers write together their reading of a text inside the text itself. The audience sees an evolving, cinematographic picture of thoughts and collaborative writing in the making. FR
Want to know more on how I practice the relation art/science in my performance art, the role of its audience, what intimacy in networked performances and to be a female artist means to me, read this interview done by Maria Chatzichristodoulou in 2010. It is still actual!
