Academy workshop final performance
Fantasy from the point of view of the actor, the textual material, the scenic and musical writing, was worked on in this unprecedented workshop, organized by the director Anne Monfort in partnership with the composer Núria Giménez Comas and the festival L'univers des mots of Conaky in Guinea. The question is how to escape from a linear vision of history with ghosts, traces, escapes where temporalities and geographies are recomposed? The corpus tested is that of Francophone women's literature that expands the edges of binary oppositions: visible/invisible, daytime/nighttime, living/dead. Texts by authors Gaëlle Bien-Aimé and Dodji do Rego are set to music by four composers, and worked on by a group of actors from the Conservatoire d'art dramatique and with the company day-for-night.
