I Am Everybody, I Am Every Body
with Marque-Lin, as BNSL with Felix Ansmann

2021

performance
I Am Everybody, I Am Every Body is an experimental performance and audio-visual piece that traces a fractured semiautobiography of Marque-Lin as a daughter of Vietnamnese refugees. Present as both metaphor and narrative device, an AI-entity acts as a dynamic, essentialising, and oppressing environment that migrates through, indifferent to their action and emotions, analysing, categorizing, and (mis-)interpreting, transforming her into - a nation-less AI-produced female entity that has decided to finally investigate the systems and networks that have created her in search of her point of origin and subsequently her purpose in living an existence of total ambiguity. Questions of nationhood, inter-generational inheritance, historical, and personal trauma skip and glitch as questions the pervasive sense of unrest and constant malfunctions happening in her body. From within the black box - a space of unknown codes and hidden layers - her identity emerges.

I Am Everybody, I Am Every Body was commissioned by the English Theatre Berlin | International Performing Arts Centre and shown at the EXPO Festival 2021 as well as the Festival der Jungen Talente 2022
