When do we recognise something as different?
How do we revisit something which is constantly erasing itself? How do we imitate, emulate, repeat, or interpret the intentions of the other?
Once More With Feeling is a game of observation, memory and reconstruction in which the performers attempt the impossible – exact mimicry. Through an excessive venture into formalism, they hope to transform the theatre into a really real playground of difference and multiplication.
If this existence is this thing is actually existing there can be no repetition – Gertrude Stein
