It concerns a ritual, an individual ritual.
You observe the night, and what is happening within it, you hear sounds. Somebody comes to meet you and invites you to follow them. He makes you climb aboard a boat. It is about a journey, a passage to the other river bank...
Face to face between spectator and actor during a night boat crossing. The rower will become the annunciator of a monologue in the first person, on a theme common to all. An anticipatory recital concerning the world which will come forth at the end of our civilisation, and the manner of this transformation.
Our world is one of an opulent energy, the world to come, yet to be discovered. This project, evocative, oneiric, political, referring to a world drowned (flooded), troubled, and in decline, but necessarily activist.
- a spectator's feedback -
« Tension, concern, suspense.... by listening to the story : what will happen to me? Towards the unknown... with underwater sounds and the music at the same time, serenity. (…) magic moments of the storyteller who transported me within my imagination. Tranquil the moment of respite, of reflection, of meditation around the fire. I don't know how to describe it : This performance has confirmed for me the decisions taken for new projects at the right moment, to reflect on my priorities, my values...»
According to a free interpretation of Stalker by Andrei Tarkovski (1979)
