I printed on paper three years of my conversation with someone via text messages, and gave it for two actors to read it within twenty five minutes. Rhythm is given by the way they handle ‘the script’, the way they read it, throw it, or make it their own. By re-enacting this text they give voice to a dialogue fragmented but linear, which runs page after page until it finds its term.
