The Bench of Any, 2014

2 male -1 female (only her voice is heard)

Michel Fais

A circular game between private and public gaze.

Two characters detached from the mural of the urgent reality, and an unspecified voice that hypnotizes them, wakens them and lures them to a wandering, a roaming, a spinning around a brutal and tender city - an unexpected city that could even be Athens.

A staggering politicalendoscopic text, where Sindney Bechet’s nostalgic “La petite fleur” and the continuous photographs of the city – that are screened when the "hypnosis" takes place – enhance the text’s associative quality and ambivalence.
