In Aladağ's performative work Mezzanine the many-voiced assemblage is represented by the single face of the actress who moves her moth according to the playback and outlines the invisible speakers through the display of a precise mime. Since all of the statements, which is a collage of the residents of the Naunynstraße share the same interface, namely the face of the performer. As confident subjects of a staging that continuously and transparently refers to itself, they offer a rich description of their environment. The result is a concrete poetry of the city, in which spectator, actress and generators of the original soundtrack become actors of a fair play with authenticity and curiosity.
