A 15-month programme on visual language, abstraction, disappearance and the object, ‘It’s moving from I to it’ takes shape through a series of commissioned texts, workshops, a set of public events and exhibitions.
As final chapter of FormContent’s It’s moving from I to It, a new performance for two actors written and directed by Tim Etchells animates questions and discourses that had been informing the whole project.

—If I Can't Dance, I Don't Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution

In which The Becoming Subject and The Portable Object meet for the first time in a public square. They both notice the intriguing presence of The Stranger. A whimsy waiter is serving drinks to all of them.
Where a confused Becoming Subject distracts the Stranger from the act of reading while looking for a book in the library. An intimidating librarian tries in vain to assist in her request. A deluge of books chases the characters out of the library which is also a theatre.

A stinging dead bee, a mirror mistaken for a painting, sentences that trigger odours in a dark room with a strange smell, words as objects and the other way round, a hyper-active Portable Object and a meditative Becoming Subject.
A scene in which The Host invites The Portable Object and The Stranger to a dinner party. A new character, Marie, is introduced.

Something develops into something else... it develops into the head of the camel on whose back The Portable Object finds himself sitting, in a riding position...
