About the show


“L’Avoir” was born from my relationships around a table with water and soap, shared with groups of children, assistants and parents during shared residencies in day-care centres in the Val d’Oise and Seine Saint-Denis – … “suspended” times of pleasure, where bursts of laughter, words and stories flowed in a co-construction of the imaginary!

Press release

“In L’Avoir, two men face each other. We will see them exchange the various sounds of a sort of pre-language around six basins which serve as percussion instruments and which, at the same time, host fluid images that immediately bring to mind water. Slowly in front of us, the two actors will touch sounds as well as materials as diverse as blocks of soap and fabrics with, almost always in the background, noises or images of water slowly trickling down. These sound games, punctuated by lights evoking the flow of water as well as time, trace a sort of indecipherable poem made up of diffuse sensations around simple and immemorial gestures. A sort of incarnation that is as furtive as it is festive… and yet manages to fascinate the very young from the start.”
