Meet the artists after the show on 23.04

At the core of the project are the young people's reflections on the environmental crisis: words of fear and incomprehension about a society that seems to be hurtling towards disaster. A large number of young people believe that this situation reveals a much deeper crisis of civilization. This is why the foundations on which our societies are trying to function need a thorough overhaul.

This state of crisis is staged as a prelude to the performance through the voice-over of an adolescent and the disturbing presence of a huge rock suspended above the stage. This scenographic setting allows the character of Ulysses to be reinterpreted. He who, on his wanderings, was faced with what could be his demise, which would cause him to lose his true nature, his memory and, ultimately, his own subjectivity. With the necessary resilience that brings him back to Ithaca and Penelope, he eventually regains his lost identity.

In this way, Monia Montali and François Bodeux express a wish, a prophecy for the crisis in which we now find ourselves.
