Two actors continuously onstage. A man carries a woman. A law of physics which becomes a dramatic game: she must not touch the ground. This is a story of love in a time of war. Louis is a soldier. On a Christmas night, under the snow at Stalingrad, he writes one last letter to his wife Marie, to tell her that he is about to die. "Marie, I am writing this letter even though I wrote to you yesterday. So much has happened that it is time for me to say adieu. I am not going to come home anymore, Marie, and yet the only things standing between us are space and time."

The metaphor is clear throughout this variation on the theme of carrying: the young man carrying the weight of the absence of his beloved.

Language: French


Established in 1975 by its present artistic directors, Claire Heggen and Yves Marc, the Theatre du Mouvement has been seen in sixty countries. Expert and entertaining, their work has been a major influence in the development of contemporary mime and visual theatre.

Item is available worldwide.
