'S is a musical solo for and with singer songwriter Ville Ahonen. It is part of the larger choreographic work Clandestine Sites: Displaced, which is comprised of four solo performances. Each part addresses the spectator by different means and in specific relation to language and choreography. Clandestine sites: Displaced approaches the performance as a love relation. Between you, the performer and his materials. The primary text of the creation is Roland Barthes A Lover's Discourse – Fragments (1977).
