“Bastia, evening of April 14, 2020. Interior night. A woman, a man, then a young woman. Confined. The woman should have been in Rome. Very old promise to meet someone there. But the world has been on land for a month and the sea is a wall. We talk all night like we go up a river. There is not much left to lean on at daybreak, if not on the wind which rises to wake us up, perhaps, from a sleep which has foreseen us for a long time”.

Black night. Two children’s voices. Two little girls in a room. Vibrations, crackles, dull and distant explosions. Light. First a woman, in mourning and as if asleep. She talks about what must have happened one day for one of the two children. Hymn to the night, case of extreme reduction, of asceticism. Instead of action, rest. Instead of a story, a meditation on the story. Sleep. Then a man. With flowers, birds and a letter »

Design and game Noël Casale and Pascal Omhovère
Two actors show up to read The Shipwreck of the Titanic, a comedy by HM Enzensberger, before turning away from it to read and say other texts which testify and question, through such beautiful poetic escapes, many other shipwrecks, individual and collective, real and symbolic of our time. Leaning towards the past because we don’t know what the present is made of and the future will be made of.
That’s what you call being an old fart, isn’t it? »
