I will continue my research around the human being, the partiality, the overflowing the forbidden... I will continue to work with the body and the space, the presence and all that is the theatre.
It is like a spectical within a spectical, I open the curtains, and discover multiple possibilities to tell stories, I enter into sensitive worlds made of colours, of flesh, of words and emotions, with an urgent need to find a way to fit it all together.
I want to break down the fourth wall, to distort the elements of the theatre, to go directly to the essential, to make do with what I have at hand on the stage, and find other spaces.
I want to be in the present moment, to put everything at the same level of importance, so hat the music seeps into the flesh, that the text leaves its' form, that the light drowns in the set...
All these questions around the stage allows me to carry on the search, to affirm and to continue to be infront of an active audience.
I will continue to research the apparent unsettled human, taking the first word, and look at their "falls" and their "flaws", working with the filled or the overflowing... Starting simply with the body in confrontation with the aquatic, we will go towards dreams, towards myths. We will approach the "important mythical texts".
Close to installation, to cinema, I continue to search for a language, to construct peoples stories, that make us feel our hearts beat.
There are three men pulling the strings of this story, three types of "buster keaton". Watching them fall and struggle until we die of laughter, watching them break through obsticals until we cry.
A musical composition will accopmany this story made of catastraphies, with unexpected events. These obsticales will be their stage partners, but they will need to carry on regardless, to recount their story despite all these obsticles.
