In the video essay, two teenagers, with the feeling of incomplete commonality with the world, roam Rome. They are aware that their vocabulary is not enough to formulate a bright future perspective. They playfully and experimentally search for the reality, formative effects of ideas, words and actions.They set out with a willingness to put themselves in the very other, to adopt attitudes and try out voices they do not yet know. To overcome the distance to the urban space and its things … through the silly, the overstrained, the poetic, the indeterminate, the crude.
Their instruments are an oversized megaphone, imagination, openness and their bodies. Their bodies act in different situations with the urban space and play around the borders of things, meanings and words.
