Fragments

October 2023 production

In Fragments, like an opening or a passage, two sound masts compose a raw space. The concept of spatial, physical and physiological sound used as sound material by the musical composition and the live text reveals the intimacy of the beings, the impact of their gesture on the material and vice versa. The dramaturgic gesture of the performers is voluntarily decomposed to show the process of dialogue between the men themselves and the material that sometimes protects, hits and propels.

The text reveals the puzzle of a humanity prey to its doubts, its fragility and its strength. Carried by a voice-over, we evoke the question of the link and the transmission. An experience that allows us to hear what is usually imperceptible, that questions the visible and hidden face of everything to perhaps better grasp its future impact.

“Not only to observe the gesture but to learn to listen to it, to give to hear the point of impact to perhaps find the balance together.”
