Songs - A woman and a man who have been pitted against each other by an accident meet in spite of themselves during their dreams.
By and with Salomé Wojewodzic & Bonap
Directed by Anne Le Moigne
Actor Jean Rouchon
"Songes" is a tender, funny and poetic play about how we can be saved by apparently irrational elements. We all go through trials and tribulations that push us to put our will into action. But what if there were other ways than willpower? Paths that escape us, go beyond us, and which, in the end, sublimate us. This is the story of an accident that creates a rupture between two people. But it is through this same accident that they will connect, and finally succeed in overcoming everything that was binding them.
This story expresses the absurdity of the notion of good and evil. Without wanting to, we can do harm by trying to do good. And conversely, we can do good by doing harm. We can all hurt others. We take umbrage, we feel guilty about it. But at the very heart of these flaws lies the mystery that weaves our bonds with others. This part that we reveal when we follow our intuition, however crazy it may be, when we fall in love, however low we may fall. To live is to fall. Living is not only an act of will. It is also an act of surrender. Surrendering to what cannot be explained, what cannot be understood, what cannot be seen. Like the dark side of the moon. Like the dark side of ourselves. And that our existences, through a play of light and shadow, reveal.
