I, I, I, I and I is an abstract account of a group’s attempt to collaborate. Though peculiar on the surface, the film’s narrative originates from improvisation exercises and research into the social dynamics of group activity. Developed through workshops with a group of young people from Body & Soul; a UK charity dedicated to transforming the lives of people affected by HIV using games and strategies drawn from theatre including: the improvisation techniques of Keith Johnstone, Unity Theatre and The Theatre Workshop and Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed. The resulting video takes both the process and the outcome of the collaboration, as its subject.
