At least that's what he thought.
All this was actually a mirage...
The Three Graces Rebellion!
Theatrical and musical performance (about 1h15) for three performers in a changing light and acoustic space. The Three Graces Rebellion! is an immersive sound experience, a journey into a mystical and mysterious night.
The statues come alive. The rest is petrified.
Winning project of the
contest "Reinvent the Opera" organized by ROF (French Operas
Organization) in June 2018.
With the support of the Lyric Creation Fund from the SACD.
World premiere on 11, 12 & 13 september 2020 on the stage of Opéra Comédie : https://www.opera-orchestre-montpellier.fr/evenement/la-revolte-des-trois-graces
Three statues, cheap copies of the Three Graces, were
forgotten years ago on a roundabout near an Ikea. Encircled and hidden by
plants that partially cover them, they talk to each other. They evoke the
difficulty of staying static, they regret nobody cares about them, complain
about the length of the days and the coldness of the marble.
They are sisters because they share the same pedestal, the same story and the same disillusions. They were promised that they would enter the museum, but obviously no one remembers it. They don’t intend to let themselves go.
