In the beginning, there was La Voix humaine by Jean Cocteau. The subject is that of a gaping absence. Then, Disappear here by Falk Richter. A poem that questions this same abyss….
The audience is submerged in the depths of a particular system that reveals the extreme solitude of she who carries the performance: a manner of exploring every possible axis of perception. See and not be seen, steal viewpoints and perspectives, Roland Auzet rewrites the relationship between the public and the narrative stage.
