We've begun shooting the New York version of 69 Love
Stories. As I've written in earlier posts, having read Raymond
Queneau's, 'Exercises in Style' and enjoying instructions I
wanted to see if I could take a similar approach to telling the
'same' story, in this case, 69 different ways. As simple as this
may sound it continues to allude me or perhaps I am finding
my own way of doing it. Where does the telling of story
happen, and what's the repetition. Isn't repetition a kind of
elaboration, a difference. Well, yes. The same but different. it's
complicated. When does the elaboration of difference exceed
69 Love stories is a kind intersection of varying repetitions
exploring different characters performing story differently,
creating stories within stories, an interconnection of
repetitions, that at times turn background to foreground,
changing narrational voice, turning place into story, turning
variations on repetitions, and the ensemble of it repeating in
different styles with multiple points of beginnings or openings.
So it is sort of all those things.
