Qui es-tu? Tu me tues
01. February 2019
“Cleo is a talking fish. He has an uncontrollable wish to communicate and to be screened.
So he is given a name and face. His voice reminds us of family disputes, anger simmering,
teen games, things that come out in a stream of consciousness from the drawer of
memory. And then return to the fishbowl without pouring the slightest drop of water or
blood. Here a breath. A Second breath. Everything back to normal… Helio, contrary to
Cleo, is a flying fish.
Helio and Cleo are two brothers.
Maybe even three….”
We all have emotions, experiences and fragments stored in chambers. Some people choose
to lock them up in old wooden chests laid in sea-deep. But- what happens when you say it
out loud: your deepest emotions, pain and experiences. – The ones that have been stored
there so long. […] What happens when you pour water to these feelings? What happens
when you let them fly out into the air? QUI-ES-TU? TU ME TUES is a personal story about
two brothers, an unstoppable urge for a self-expression and radically different “coping
mechanisms” in the fluidity of contemporary living.
