“To be not me” is a show about creating a human connection considering all our differences, similarities and compromises in between us. Connection is in between, an intention to cover the gap separating us. Feeling deeply connected is the closest we can get to understanding the question everyone has wondered at some point of their life: “what is it like to be not me?”. In the show we go back to the basics of human connection to see how we can make connecting deeply with someone easier. We wish to bring the audience into something they will have known at one point, but might also have forgotten.
“To be not me” on esitys ihmisten välisen yhteyden luomisesta ja miten eroavaisuudet, samanlaisuus ja kompromissit vaikuttavat siihen. Yhteys on välissämme, aie kuroa meitä erottavan kuilun yli. Kun tunnemme syvää yhteyttä toiseen, olemme lähimpänä monelle tutun kysymyksen ymmärtämistä: "Minkälaista se olisi, jos en olisi minä?".
Esityksessä palaamme yhteyden luomisen perusteille ja tutkimme, miten syvältä tuntuvan yhteyden saaminen voisi olla kepeää ja helppoa. Toivomme tuovamme yleisön johonkin, joka saattaa vaikuttaa tutulta.. mutta unohtuneelta.
