Aphasadisiac

APHASIADISIAC / First produced 2008

Conception et choreography Ted Stoffer

The title: "Aphasiadisiac" is a compound of aphasia (the inability to express or understand thought in spoken or written words) and aphrodisiac (arousing the mood of sexual excitement).
It is what I believe most people suffer from when they find themselves speechless or speak in long sentences that have no meaning, add unnecessary words, or even create new words while they are in the grips of love. For example, an aphasiadisiac may say, “You know that smoodle pinkered and that I want to get him round and take care of her like you want before", but if he means "You look great and I want you right now.”, is up to interpretation.
This piece is about the politics of love – the construction and deconstruction of relationships via the efforts of understanding and communicating when the explicit and individual nature of speech and the implicit and universal nature of movement is in question. It presents a recourse of illusions, seductions, aggressions, retaliations and reconciliations that are perhaps familiar to all relationships.

Trilogy – part three
"Aphasiadisiac" is the last instalment of a trilogy inspired by the conditions and transmutable nature of communication.
The first, "I Enigma", dealt with the beginnings of personal communication. The difficulties and procedures of finding a language we call our own – one not borrowed from society, parental upbringing or peer groups.
The second, "Dear Elizabeth,…" was inspired by two completely different events. The death of my grandmother when I was 3 months old and the events surrounding the first election of president George W. Bush.
In each situation I asked myself, what has been communicated. What remains of someone once they are gone? Where are the controls or barriers of public and  private ownership?
Is love public? Is your vote public? What about intimacy? How will we be remembered? How is anyone ever remembered?
The impetus for the final episode, "Aphasiadisiac", is inspired by memories of my childhood and attempts at relationships: the love, disappointment, understanding, denial, acceptance, loss and re-discovery of self.

Music
The music blends Slavic melodies with bossa nova rhythms and mixes drum cadences with brass dialogue. It is composed by and played by the cast. Songs were arranged by Sam Serruys and Ladislav Soukup.
