Transquinquennal / Marie Henry
05/02/2019 08/02/2019
  • Duration: 1h15
  • Location : Salle de l’Œil vert

Five actors and actresses – a French, a Belgian, a Romanian, a Slovenian, a German – come together to perform a show, all speaking a different language and having nothing in common. In collaboration with Marie Henry, Transquinquennal conceives a device where languages and the verbal communication process are questioned before and with the audience. In this vicious device, they do not warn the actors of everything they have to do, or when, moreover, and add to the confusion a voice recognition machine able to understand what is being said on stage, display the surtitles and launch other commands.
