Immersed in longing, a woman guides us through a moving internal dialogue as she revisits fragments of a sordid romance.
LA CAUSEUSE (The Loveseat) is a physical theatre solo piece that vividly paints a world of intrigue and mystery entirely without words. This is living poetry, David Lynch style, with a fair share of sordid romance, absurdity and a hint of subtle humour. This original creation reveals the artist’s sensitive and very personal theatrical language where movement is of the essence. It captivates the audience with its darkly comic and poetic visual language. With nothing more than a body and a lonely loveseat, it shows us a world within a solitary soul.
«When I look in the depths of myself I find solitude and consciousness of death. I enjoy life so much that I am always haunted by death. I can touch it as if beneath the sheet. It comes from the fact that I am an orphan…I feel orphaned….I believe theater is an invention of the people, to combat the solitude.. It is a happenstance of lonely people; a gathering of the lonely souls…» Jean-louis Barrault
