One, no one, 100.000 by Lotte Milder
"Iemand, niemand, 100.000 (One, no one, 100.000)" is a multi-disciplinary project consisting of a performance (on and off the catwalk), a photo series and a short film. The première of the performance took place at FASHIONCLASH Festival 2016.
The performance, inspired by Luigi Pirandello’s book, is about observing and judging the other(s). The performer searches, and comes to realise that she is not a single person, but numerous people in the consciousness of those around her. ‘’Seeing things with eyes that could not have known how they were being seen by others. Talking and understanding one another. Everybody assumed it to be true in their own way and claimed the concept to somehow, every day and in any way, give their life substance." Luigi Pirandello (1867 - 1936)
'One, no one, 100.000' is a visually stunning journey through heritage, a view on perception and stereotypes our minds create. Everything we see is always coloured by memories and experiences. So the question is, who we really are as basically everyone sees everyone differently. And in what manner is the self authentic. Lotte Milder has a strong language and a great sense for aesthetic. Also her performing talent deserves mention. With a great teamwork with Sophie Mantel and Karlijn Milder she presented a relevant performance but also a poetic story that really moved me.
With this graduation project Lotte showed great potential as a theatre maker with ability to translate conceptual narratives to meaningful performances.
