Jeu Claques explores the hidden mechanisms within a couple through the intense performance of two actors. An endless number of slaps are exchanged, as the roles are inverted from active to passive, dominant and submissive. The coupling of sound and image points to the co-ordination, tension and unpredictability of a relation between two individuals.

"SPIRAL OF VIOLENCE. LOVE. APPLAUSE.
"Whether it’s the flies I whisk away or you I beat to the ground, it’s no matter. Your violence has become our common pulse, my violence, your violence, our rhythm. Listen, this is the applause for beating you to the ground. You beat me to the ground." Kristina Stoltz
