But I Have to Say, You Were in Your Element on the Stairs uses the televised Game Show as a format for intertwining characters, roles and performers to push against hierarchies of individual and collective labour and its results. Created in collaboration with .2dot (Riccardo Tarocco & António Branco), Lea Collet ,and Marios Stamatis, the performance evolves in a combined front and back stage set at the same time. The juxtaposition of designated on air and off air spaces allows the blurring of real and simulated emotions that are transformed into pop songs, techno dancing and reality television dialogues.
