Medusen

#Work in progress#lookingforapremiere

game role for different groups of audience and performers


le contraire d’empirer c’est d’amender
at the beginning, there is the meeting with jellyfishes in an aquarium in Osaka, deserted beaches in summer in Australia, plastic bags in the sea, a fascination for shipwreck ;  Réné Girard talking about mimesis and the second symphony of Gustav Malher.

Then happen #metoo, an injustice of the place of the feminine, a re-reading of the myth of medusa and its epi-genetic character on our own oedipes, the hearing of  the sinfonia of Luciano Berio, the new adventures of György Ligeti and some foley.

Finally, there was a return to video games, hot-chat online, criminal investigation inspectors and some new jellyfishes, from the the Berlin aquarium, the discover of the vocoder and Isabelle mansuy, an understanding of the justice systems, their potential to the democracy, and their ritual close to that of the concert.
