Zoo: dialogue
fragments is an experiment between drama, documentary and meta fiction. It is inspired by the book, A Lover's Discourse: Fragments by Roland Barthes, the early films of Jean Luc Godard and the films of Wong Kar Wai. The communications and experiences in love are always complicated and difficult to express into words. The romance relationships like two subjects acting a play without a pre-written scripts directed by both of them. The performativity of lovers slowly turns a fiction into a documentary when they identify and behave like each other more.
