Nakasoné (1991-2014)

The stage : a kitchen, with a table, two chairs, a refrigerator, some vegetables, a knife.

At the beginning, an a capella duet which is performing since 1991 all over Europe. Two voices, but also two actors and a meeting with a director and light effects… And then, the desire to go further, to explore new ways ,to slip in a new theater dimension
The stage : a kitchen, with a table, two chairs, a refrigerator, some vegetables, a knife.
The plot: a couple cooks and is cooked, duet in love or domestic conflict?
The style: burlesque tragy-comedy with lyrical vocalises.
The visual story is inspired by the Balthus’ s paintings without seeking neither to illustrate them nor to reproduce them.
The objects are not used in their usual function: the vegetable peelings become the colors of the pallet of a painter. The refrigerator, luminous body, is by turns an altar, a small castle, a partner or a fridge.
The thread of the story: daily relationship between a man and a woman, Man and Woman. Daily life, in a language we do not understand but which echoes deeply in ourselves and which simply reminds us the essencet of human relationships.The thread is the song, the music, the languages kurdish, gypsies, Hungarian, Yiddish, Neapolitan, Greek orthodoxe which sound with strangeness and familiarity.

The challenge is to work upside down; to start from the sound of the words in order to reveal the meaning of the language, the logic of the story; to find the coherence of the play by exploring the song like children playing, laughing and crying at the same time.
