The notion of stutter as a structural nucleus buds the performance I Stutter with Joy with an attempt to question its possible translation and transformation into various 'artistic' fields. Understanding it as an interruption and disruption in the communication, which is mainly hindering it, stuttering is at the same time an offering, occurring exactly in the frozen moment of a potentiality in which something new could emerge.
