In search of something. To go beyond what we have. The limits. Exceed them. Find out anything that surprises us that confronts us. To bring us face to face with comfort. At all costs, we spit out endless amounts of things, which hinder our mind. I have just been hindered.
Some new questions that are new riddles, how curious. I would like to run, run, flow out torrents of fads and tricks that dampen my brain, but what can I do but cede? Or feel as best as can my mad music sourish by scintillate lumps crossed with coriander and radish? Lie is lie.
This play is a reflection about performance, about creation and about the interpreter’s role as a mediator of the work.
This work evokes other creators who influenced the birth of this play and who also question the pertinence of the very performance. It was also the possibility to work from the identity of two people who could be the same or who, through mutual influence, create new imaginaries.
My images are born from that which I am not, from what I would like to embrace and cannot, because I’m made of limitations. Perhaps, by exceeding my own limits, I can find new things.
