The world is ordered in a certain way and there are certain agreements about how people should behave. I watch my everyday environment and experience it as artificial. Composition and choreography give the impression that reality is directed. In the movie ‘Playlet’ I took on the role of director and constructed a new script based on everyday actions. The sidewalk is the stage and the random pedestrians are actors that play random pedestrians. The repetition of acts change everyday behaviour and routine into a theatre play.
