In Vivo Théâtre
At the very end of the Iliade, Priam and Achilles meet: two sworn enemies. Priam crosses the land with a donkey to recover is son, Hector’s, body in Achilles’ tent. “For a moment, protected by the sleep of an entire army, two beings looked at one another. No longer bound by external laws, by learned hatred. They invent a moment that is only for them, made of admiration and tears. Centuries of conditioned rage surges up in their eyes, and lowers: the species recognizes itself. They are quiet, watching each other, eating, sleeping. Their common insignificance counterbalances the tumult that preceeded it.” (Daniel Jeanneteau). The noise and fury of the Iliade transit vis the sonic stage design, entrusted to two young composers: Chia Hui Chen (Taiwan) and Stanislav Makovsky (Russa), and the voice of the actor Laurent Poitrenaux.
