The Force That Ravages Everything by David Lescot

The Force That Ravages Everything is quite simply a play about love.

A love conceived not as an idyllic feeling, but as a force that seizes us and contaminates us, a kind of violent and uncontrollable disease, a devastating principle that turns everything upside down, ruins our resolutions to order and to reason, and triggers demented and anarchic behavior in us.

In short, this love which blows on the characters of the play like a wind of madness, is a true revolutionary principle, on the scale of their lives, giving rise to senseless decisions, opposed to all calculation, to all economy, to all standards. , to any principle of profitability, balance or interest. Both fatal and liberating, it is pure expense and even pure loss.

This stunning vision of the feeling most sung by poets will take the form of a musical. In the musical, the sung and danced numbers intervene like so many detachments from reality, enchantments, emotional levitations that are no longer enough to translate the spoken dramatic form.

Musical comedy then, since we are talking about fate and sorcery, about bewitchments of which we can no longer say whether they are harmful or beneficial, and it does not matter since they produce euphoria and frenzy, these extreme states never better translated, in my opinion , than through music, song and dance.
