I am sitting in a room different from the one you are in now é uma performance de João Fiadeiro. Foi estreada em Outubro de 1997 no Festival Internacional de Nouvelle Danse (FIND) em Montreal, Canadá. É baseada na peça sonora I am sitting in a room criada em 1969 por Alvin Lucier. No palco, Fiadeiro utiliza uma fotocopiadora para reproduzir o seu rosto. Ao utilizar escalas diferentes e copiar as sucessivas cópias, a imagem original perde progressivamente a sua definição. A peça sonora de Alvin Lucier serve como plataforma conceptual e paisagem sonora para tornar explícita e assertiva a posição que Fiadeiro quer explorar. Nomeadamente a relação entre repetição e diferença ou a forma como, sem subterfúgios ou efeitos, a performance faz exactamente o que diz: "Estou sentado numa sala...".

Namely the relationship between repetition and difference or the way how, without subterfuges or effects, the performance does exactly what it says: “I am sitting in a room...”
