After Words concludes a trilogy relating to Gilles Deleuze’s Abécédaire, imagined as a concept and process. As a theatrical documentary bringing together pop philosophy, dance and video, After Words gives furtherance to viewpoints and story lines. Two performers and one musician are asked to experiment on common ground. They wander about, confront each other, move from one situation to another, narrate and take on as many roles. Isabella Soupart questions several notions : notions of limit, territory and bestiality, drawing from the Fluxus group’s conceptual art.
