“Hardly ever” explores the notion of truth and lies in theatre and everyday experience, bringing forward an investigation started with “Sincerely yours” (2008-09). The work plays with the gap between creating expectations and allowing the unexpected. Presenting the juxtaposition of physical responses to verbal statements, where the slight mismatch opens for new associations. Involving the body as cartography of the space and using the voice, singing and talking, with a significant text that informs with its meanings and affects for what it evokes.
