Direction: Caroline Guiela Nguyen, Alexandre Plank, Antoine Richard – Production: Blandine Masson (Atelier Fiction de France Culture) – Music: Antoine Richard – Sound: Matthieu Leroux, Marie Jaworski, Claude Niort – Actors: Dan Artus (Vincent), Chloé Lefèvre (Julie) – Lydie Lefèvre (Cello); Félix Levacher (Associate Director); Teddy Gauliat-Pitois (Music Assistant) – Producing organisation: Radio France – France
In a work that explores the relationship between a woman and her brother through the prism of their father’s death, with highly skilled naturalistic truthful performances, the listener is immersed in a narrative of times past and times present, in a world of sounds and of silences , in a relationship of closeness and of detachment.
There are no easy answers to life.
The impossibility of communicating is paradoxically communicated in a rich radiophonic soundscape, allowing the listener to explore her own emotions and reflections.
A persuasively demanding play that gently forces you to confront the many faces of inescapable Grief.
