À NOS FANTÔMES (TO OUR GHOSTS) TAKES US ON AN INNER JOURNEY. THIS SELF-DISCOVERY TRIP MAKES US SEE LIFE THROUGH GLORIA’S EYES AND REVELAS HER PARTICULAR RELATION TO THE WORLD.
Gloria was never a Swedish singer or a figure skating champion, but she dreamed of it. Hanging in midair, looking uncomfortably overdressed, she’s waiting for things to happen.
Thud! Free fall entrance. A young woman lies on the ground. The resemblance is uncanny. Could it be… her?
À Nos Fantômes (To Our Ghosts)takes us on an inner journey through a series of scenes-sequences.
This self-discovery trip makes us see life through Gloria’s eyes and reveals her particular relation to the world. Gloria mistakes dreams for reality. She is lonely, kind of cowardly and somewhat megalomaniac. Life and its endless possibilities scare her. She is afraid her dreams will disappear, afraid to fall short of her expectations, afraid to choose by fear of renouncing. She is lost… Mired in reality.
“Célia Casagrande-Pouchet and Sarah Devaux lead us to the limits of adult tales. Between dream and reality, absurd and anguish, a remarkable show presented as part of the Up! 2018 festival.” – Léna Martinelli, Les 3 Coups
