I am not I is a piece that explores a topological sense of space and being-in space. The piece is visualised as an arrangement of 20 lemniscate figures (Figures of 8), and bodies tangled up into knots and twisted circles. The piece explores forms of non-geometric and continuous bodily and motional form, and proposes a performative and choreographic rendition of folded space across a number of fields: movement, bodies, spoken words, and identities. In seeing the identitary ‘I’ as a paradoxical self-cancellation, the piece also explores paradoxical selfhood through stereotypies and paradoxes of movement (loopy movement), as part of a movement ontology of topological space: I am not I is a choreographic exercise in movement paradoxes, what director Nicolas Salazar Sutil elsewhere has called a ‘paradance’.
