Aitana / stand-in Notebook
“In this notebook, Aitana, wrote her thoughts, impressions and feelings during her stay for 10 days in Lebanon as the stand-in of Lina.
Aitana wrote in Spanish, her mother tongue. Lina needs her to read and translate so that she can access Aitana’s experience in her place in Lebanon. In the performance ‘Where we are not’, the audience decides which page Aitana wold read and translate. The experience is shared, the authorship of memories is negotiated, identities are scripted and re-scripted, and the act of remembering and the proposal of replacement are reflected on together with the audience.”
