The feeling of Home is searched, which should be present in the one. Dialogue is essential. The intensity / lightness of being of the one here and now, to be the one in the one, to look for the home and the one in different aspects and finding in the only in me-you/self, is questioned.

*Home-logue word is composed of two different word and concepts , “home”and “-logue” like in monologue or in dialogue. Also in contrast with the meaning of “homologous” word.

A home is a place where a person or family lives, perhaps spends much of their time, or where a person is comfortable being. The concept of “home” is broader than a physical dwelling. Home is often a place of refuge and safety, where worldly cares fade and the things and people that one loves becomes the focus. Many people think of home in terms of where they grew up, or a time rather than a place.
A monologue is a speech made by one person speaking his or her thoughts aloud or directly addressing a reader, audience or character.
A dialogue is a reciprocal conversation between two or more persons.
*In biology, two or more structures are said to be homologous if they are alike because of shared ancestry.

Secondly invited to Belgium

13 February 2007. 0090 Kunstenfestival. Antwerpen.Belgium.  Monty Theater

Home-logue is a monologue of an individual looking for itself which grows to be a dialogue between the performer and the public. It asks the question: “But can you possibly stay the same?” The performance is an improvisation that originates by means of interaction with the public.

Third version is performed in ACT FESTIVAL- BILBAO

a Road-alogue ( Monologue  the 3rd )

The  “road-alogue” is composed of two words and concepts; “road*” and “logos*”

*Road is an identifiable route, way or path between two or more places.[1]

*Logos is: something said; by implication a subject, topic of discourse or reasoning.

*A monologue is an extended, uninterrupted speech by a single person. The person may be speaking his or her thoughts aloud or directly addressing other persons, e.g. an audience, a character, or a reader. ( *wikipedia)

“Road-alogue”  is a monologue about a road trip, a speech, word about a road. It is a someone’s journey through a road, what all happened, crashes, accidents, and the walking the road, running the road, on the railroad, high way, in the air, on a flight, with people, with lot of people, or all alone… The road full of different accidents and surprises. It is a road to self, to the other and to you. Somebody developing through a road…it is not the same person as in the beginning.

In the performance dialogue is essential. The intensity and  lightness of being of the one here and now, to be the one is reseached with the means of interaction with the audience.

*A road is an identifiable route, way or path between two or more places.[1] Roads are typically smoothed, paved, or otherwise prepared to allow easy travel;[2] though they need not be, and historically many roads were simply recognizable routes without any formal construction or maintenance[3].
