Compagnie Mangano-Massip “Tell me the truth... and other stories” 30th August (Friday) 7.P.M

“Tell me the truth...”

This piece was inspired by poems from Jacques Prévert.
This duet tells the story of a couple having a relationship without words, or tender gestures. This relationship has become sclerotic with silence and lack of communication. They both stand on their side and hold to their part: the victim or the executioner.... But who’s who? As regards suffer- ing, it is not to be denied. Dense and almost palpable, this feeling sweeps into the space and makes it tangible, vibrates to the slightest movement of each character. Time of sentimental break-up re- veals the characters’ hidden personality. Metaphors pile over common reality which, as a leitmotiv, intrudes more and more oppressively to end up like a shower of letters. Is it really over?


Other stories:

“The child of the hight see”

A sailor abandoned on a deserted island starts writing to while his solitude away. In this piece, the parts devoted to the Muse and the Creator are reversed. The created being lives somewhere haunted by the absurdity of his own existence. Governed by the unpredictable course of changing details, deletions, and additions, neither life nor death is possible. The two characters dream about one another without being able to reach. Their two realities start to merge. Their SOS get lost like bottles full of messages in the great sea.

“The blue frame”

Originally created for the tour in Iran, this solo leads one to question about the limits society im- poses on the individuals - particularly on woman - and also tempts to analyze the ambiguous rela- tions we all have with their limits.


In this play the material and the subject become confused. The man is at the same time the creator and the creation. From the most innocent poetic gesture to the delirious madness of megalopolis- es, from the invention of love to that of the war, this play puts us in front of the following question: Which mark we want to let on the world?
