“Make love while building your muscles, in 15 min flat” - “Manage your stress: 2 quick, effective exercises” - “10 tips to spice up your romantic relationship”: such things regularly headline the newspapers to help us optimize our daily and intimate activities. “Track Yourself” is to our way of life what Toyotism was to the scientific organization of work. This creation, composed of a montage of texts by Falk Richter, depicts the calibrated and quantified daily life of a couple trained in what Gérard Neyrand calls “relational individualism”. Equipped with measurement tools that scrutinize and analyze their behaviour, the two partners seek to shape their relationship with a view to efficiency by using methods of personal fulfilment such as an athletic version of the Kama Sutra, or energizing and anti-ageing massages. The mechanization of workers’ movements will be the source of inspiration for choreographing daily and intimate body movements and gestures.
