Sandrine Nogueira & Théâtre en français à Berlin
Freely adapted from Nous, les héros by J.L Lagarce | in französischer Sprache
presents the life of a travelling theatre company. It's a family, a little by blood, a little by
stage. From the dressing rooms to the kitchens to the stage, you will visit a temporary camp, a little precarious, a little makeshift. The characters are young, sparkling and romantic, full of doubts, desires, misunderstandings. Everyone is looking for his or her place, here or elsewhere, in a group or alone. They are alone, together. Tired of the provincial village halls, of the backyards and the sarcastic indifference of the public, a little disappointed with the life they lead, they are looking for adventure, dreams and fantasy about new lives, big stages and big cities.
A show is going to happen, but you won't see it. The actors come off the stage and we are celebrating an important event, an engagement, this is a special night. The party is getting ready, and while we're supposed to be celebrating, no one can pretend. The business of the troupe is going badly... we should be celebrating, though.
The conflict is always about to explode. We're talking. We argue. But we also sing, we laugh a lot, we love each other deeply. This company is at a turning point in its history. These characters make existential questions come to reason, with clear-sightedness, humanity and humour. With vitality they express what is most essential in themselves, with necessity they reveal themselves to others. Who are the HEROS here? The characters? We doubt it. The actors certainly.
