Dick Wong describes his work on a performance as a schizophrenic process. As creator and first spectator alike, he is constantly moving between objective and subjective perspectives and hence, between different roles.

In BE ME, the first part of a trilogy which is to be completed with the pieces LOVE ME and DO ME, he addresses the fragility of identity, the old doubts of an ego that wants to be another: “I am not what I am. I am what I want to be. I am not what I am. I am what I don’t want to be. BE ME is about otherness. The me in others. The others in me.” Dick Wong has been developing BE ME in close cooperation with the Berlin dancer Judith Rosmair – together, they share with the audience their processes of rapprochement and their crises.
