A textual exercise constructed by short, fragmentary notes taken from travel journals that is conjoined by footnotes based on literary terms and definitions of ”drama” found in dictionaries. The footnotes comment on the stylistic structure of the notes; enlightening the reader´s relationship to the text, applying dramaturgy and how the text possibly could continue.
