Histoire par celui qui la raconte

Histoire par celui qui la raconte

< >


We could begin with a piece of fiction about prehistory. Pure fantasy? Bad dreams!
Women and men creating a universe suspended between ritual and game, between scary and funny, a montage of simple actions, segregations or singular blocks.
The story is full of holes, set in a mix of times, unevenly sourced, historically told, with anthropological and cinematographic references.
They dance, sharing out the space, making up little sketches, bar bar bar.
A song repeats, a refrain, a hymn, a lullaby. The action is in crisis, the space in danger of being offset, threatened by a principle of instability.
The speaker calls a conference.
The ringmaster holds the reins.
The sound man punctuates the actions.
The subject, like Sisyphus, the proletarian of the gods. Total black out
Where is Beckett?
A speech
Cries and whimpers,
A song
