Te craindre en ton absence

Five years after "Hypermusic Prologue", Hector Parra presents his second work for stage in this collaboration with Marie NDiaye.

"I have written novels, several plays, children's books, and a screenplay, but never a text for an opera. This isn’t a test, but a renewal of my practice of writing, of inscribing, and trying to use this practice in a new format for me, that of a monologue that can not be heard, perhaps not even understood, without music. This is not narration or poetry, but a combination of fiction and lyricism. This is a woman who expresses herself, who talks about fundamental events of her existence: being a girl and a mother, coming from a region, from a country, belonging to the human community, being a part of men and yet being a woman, always distinctive."
Marie NDiaye
