Les oiseaux sont libres d'aller où ils veulent. Pourtant, ils volent presque tous en groupe.

„Birds are free to go wherever they feel like. However, almost all of them fly in groups.“ I was reading something when I came across these affirmative sentences. Their distorted logic confounded me: the first sentence already projects human attributes and aspirations on the birds, the necessity of feeling free and the will to chose a goal of the journey. The second sentence is event more problematic. Deriving from the first one, it states that despite of being free, birds fly in groups, as if freedom would mean solitude, and judging by it that birds must be stupid not to profit from their freedom.
In this lecture-performance, this example is the backdrop of the narration that points at the assertive manner by which human species watch and interpret the world.
