Monadology. A treatise on relationality is a live stage installation based on Mondalogy, written by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in 1714. His famous work seems to gain new actuality in the context of mutual interplay of human body and city. The installation in its structure corresponds to chosen concepts of Leibniz world. All elements that build the life stage installation, like the architectural design, the audio installation or even the graphic elements that are used on the costumes correspond to five chosen issues that organize the structure of Leibniz’s world, but at the same time we can find them in the contemporary world. These are: perspective, perception, networking, monologue and repetition.
