Une cérémonie

Raoul Collectif

01 & 02.03.2024

 A group of people gets together to celebrate something. Something important, it seems. And yet they hesitate. What should they wear, how should they dress? What should they say first, what should they do first? Although dressed to the nines and apparently happy to be together, there is a sense of concern in the air and the mood is fickle.

Little by little, things take an irrational turn and the thing invents itself at the same time as it searches for itself. The music veers off course. As it gets under way, the ceremony gets out of control. Mythical and ancestral figures emerge, dreamlike places and worlds take shape, beings become embodied.

New signs, new questions – how to act? – appear on the horizon.
