Screaming in the rain, the absence and the void

30 aug - 07 sept 2019 | Grande salle | Durée : 1h

Perdre son sac

Pascal Rambert / Denis Maillefer

In association with La Bâtie-Festival de Genève

In the street, a young woman, temporarily working as a window cleaner, addresses passers-by to tell them about her loneliness, her anger, her lost lover and her inability to understand a world that some deem divided between the haves and the have-nots. A text custom-designed for actress Lola Giouse. The author, Pascal Rambert, is a French contemporary writer who composes texts shaped by and for the actors and actresses who perform them.

“We like Pascal Rambert’s writing. His flow of raw yet organised words, his classical yet contemporary French language, his unique voice in French-speaking theatre, cousin/daughter to Racine and Koltès. Here, we were touched by his political poetry which addresses the marginality and pain of those who feel left out of the great race for social and economic success in our capitalist societies. More intimately, Perdre son sac showcases a loud cry for love in the void.” NKDM
