Are you a monster?
Is it in your nature to never succeed?
Do you have difficulties communicating with others?
Is your form constantly changing?
Is it true that you live in the shadows?
”Baby it’s you not me” is a search for the monster, a performance that materializes on stage, in the imagination of the audience and in the exchange between those two. Through an exploration of recognizable movements and inundating live music, the choreography and performance structure dissect the qualities and aspects of monsters and the monstrous. The audience is thus invited to spend some time with the undefinable and the nameless.
”Baby it’s you not me” is also a concert. In a simple, blunt yet playful way it unfolds through speech, dance and music that stay short of expectations.
Functioning as a fluent symbiotic trio, performers Emma-Cecilia Ajanki and Piet Gitz- Johansen along with saxophone player Otis Sandsjö move through elements of sound, light and body in a way that affects, confuses and blurs the experience of the audience.
