ALLEIN!

CREATION 2018 by Erika Zueneli, in collaboration with Jean Fürst & Rodolphe Coster

«Allein ! Die Welt hat mich vergessen. Ich hänge rum ! » – Nina Hagen

On a bare stage are three performers. Nothing about the trio is rigid or particularly minimalistic, they are simply enjoying forming and deforming themselves. It is just like a game of potential conjunctions, expanding the scope for clues, and for beginnings. As if the fact of moving forward is never too far from starting over.

Even if the title seems to evoke loneliness, if a London pea-souper creeps onto the stage, if the color black prowls almost obstinately, still a scent of mischief hovers over this crossing, hinting at the more-or-less distant past in which the present continues to resonate. Bodies, movements, and figures are drawn, come into being, and transform themselves. Sounds, music, and voices slip, slide, make their mark and implode. Words escape too, echoing over one another. Words fall, not really under the senses, rather they are happy to swoop beneath, or to soar above.

Past, present, future? The time for conjugation is over. Write no more. Get a real taste of the verb ‘to happen’.
