“And I dance, too”, a duo of actors, around a digital correspondence, carried by the live compositions of Kristophe Bach. A captivating story that tells us about literature, creation but also about love and encounters today.
What drives Pierre-Marie Sotto, a famous writer lacking inspiration, to start a digital correspondence with this mysterious Adeline Parmelan who has just sent him a bulky envelope? The convenience? Curiosity ? Or this photo that she sends him and which triggers “a slight discomfort” in him? Here he is dropped into correspondence with a woman he knows nothing about and who dares to tell him “for people who have nothing to say to each other, we write to each other a lot”! This story written, like a screenplay by Anne-Laure Bondoux and Jean-Claude Mourlevat, adapted for the theater by Olivia Lancelot, keeps the audience spellbound until the last line, unfolding this virtual thriller where everyone reveals themselves through an interposed screen, with this distance that brings down modesty.
A show full of humor and humanity
Created by Harvest Company, with Olivia Lancelot, Loic Rojouan, and Kristophe Bach (composer of the original music and songs of the play), the show is directed by Benoît Gautier, screenwriter, director and producer. The quality of this theatrical adaptation lies in its relentless mechanism with its twists and riddles, close to a film script. Performed live every evening by Christopher Bach, the music draws its particular color from the plot. Strangeness and suspense arise from the work of sounds that are made and recreated every evening on stage. With Olivia Lancelot and Loïc Rojouan, at Bordeaux Fine Arts Theater from January 20 to 29, 2022.
