Burning (Je ne mourus pas et pourtant nulle vie ne demeura)

On a set that aspires to verticality, it’s hard for a man to keep his balance and his anchor point. In a closed world littered with cardboard boxes he has to move, sort and pile up, he puts all his energy into preserving a shred of rationality. Cold and unstable, the set is a metaphor for the uncaring and alienating world of work. Personal accounts and poetic texts performed by Laurence Vielle act as a counterpoint to the visual world, where video and lights create a world where man has become a commodity.
