Based on Erreur de construction by Jean-Luc Lagarce and Les Bâtisseurs d'empire ou le Schmürz by Boris Vian
Two major authors of the 20th century, Lagarce and Vian. We are actually celebrating the 60-years anniversary of Vian’s death. A show based on two plays that transcend each other so well that they seem to have been written one for the other, as if in echo. The show begins with Lagarce’s play staged in the form of an underground revue. Lagarce’s characters then slip into their new skin, those of the members of a bourgeois family whose self-disintegration is outlined by Vian. The Schmürz, both human and animal, is the sole survivor. Gian Manuel Rau loves the mischievous precision of both plays: they fit perfectly in his world!
“A collision between two authors which we would not have spontaneously associated. That’s a meeting we’d like to see! Like we’d like to see this Schmürz, an invention by Ursula Vian-Kübler, the writer’s Swiss-German wife. Like a contraction between the word ‘pain’ (Schmerz) and Jarry’s ‘merdre’ , the Schmürz is a strange sound. It’s also a sensation we feel within, a mixture of real danger and guilty conscience, like an imp torturing us. In short, two comedies because there is comedy in Comédie de Genève, right?” NKDM
