EN - The film one, two, many consists of three performances: a flute piece with continuous breathing; a spoken monologue; and a song by four singers in front of an audience. Starting from different audio-visual perspectives, each section explores the existential space of the voice. Connecting the three performances are the central themes of the individual's body, listening to the other, and finding the right distance for multiple voices in a social space.

FR - Le film one, two, many est la combinaison de trois performances : un morceau de flûte en respiration continue, un monologue parlé, et une chanson interprétée par quatre chanteurs face à un public. Prenant sa source dans des perspectives audiovisuelles différentes, chaque performance explore le champ de la voix. La combinaison des trois performances forme le thème central du corps humain, écouter les autres et trouver la bonne distance parmi les multiples voix issues d’un lieu public.
