As if immersed in a film shooting, Stuart Boother and Seyit Bozdag discuss ways to design a discourse and choreography of a confrontation. During two hours they rehearse in order to compose a narrative based on movements of attack and self defense. They recreate and re-staged a critical situation where no direct references of the disputes motive are available.

Stuart was trained in Stunt Combat with Cloudio Pacifico and in Method Acting in Hollywood with Bernard Hiller. He elaborates a discourse around each of the movements and actions being rehearsed. Seyit questions the ways of how his body is being conducted throughout the entire process of the simulation. Stuart teaches him techniques, tactics and expressions of acting so Seyit can measure and control his movements of attack. Seyit, has had over 20 years experience in taekwondo. Currently, Seyit takes part in Combat Competitions all over the world.

The performance concluded with the exhibition of the choreographed designed fight.

A structure is a system of inner relations, of interactions governing the subject form inside. A machine, (that simply means whatever agent is working and producing effects) on the other hand, is an eccentric actor: it comes from outside and changes the framework in which the subject is located so that the subject itself is changing its form. Therefore the machine jeopardizes the structural pattern and provokes a displacement of the subject. While the structure is essentially morphostatic and territorializing, the machine is the factor of deterritorialization that leads to morphogenesis.
