Si vous pouviez lécher mon cœur / Julien Gosselin

Through Andreyev’s writing, my new show will draw a similar circle. One saying that the future is the past. It will be a tribute to extinct art and humanity, to obscure times viewed from space when men used to walk in the snow as a group.

Run time 260 minutes, incl. intermission
Genre Theater
Language French
Surtitles Dutch, English

Show not recommended for children under 15


Dutch opening night Sat December 17

Le Passé


I will work with video, music and a troupe composed with the same actors I’ve always been working with, some new ones too. The play will explore new ideas as I will work with paintings, chassis, candle footlights, ancient costumes that will coexist with the camera, glazed spaces and today’s images.

-|-
There will be painted landscapes, salons bourgeois, winter gardens and musicians in the orchestra pit.
