25.6 - after the performancewith Stéphane Braunschweig

The roles they play in each other’s lives keep changing: one moment they satisfy a temporary need the other person has, the next they pose a threat. The position that people occupy on the chessboard of human relationships changes constantly. In Nous pour un moment, director Stéphane Braunschweig playfully explores the instability of modern relationships and identities. Someone can be a woman’s lover one moment, and the enemy who leaves her for someone else the next. Every interaction is doomed to be interrupted; the enemy is never far off.
