Documentation from performance at The Chisenhale, London 2014

In the futuristic cult-like atmosphere of I’ve said yes now, that’s it., a controller directs actors towards humorous or cynical inculcations of more typically introspective paranoias and doubts. Switching between the 1st and 3rd person, the narration followed by the actors’ melodically chanted responses conflate to reveal misalignments between independent volition and governed action. The often unnerving disjuncture between physical appearances and internal imaginings is probed and interrogated with voices and actions that repeat, overlay and intertwine.
