Life is old there, 2019


Life is old there, a 5 hours performance presented at the Palais de Tokyo during Do Disturb festival on 12 - 13 & 14th of April 2019.
Hoël Duret & Tanguy Malik Bordage
With Coline Barraud, Pierre Bouglé, Quentin Ellias, Armel Façon, Manuel Garcie-Kilian
and the students of the Ecole nationale superieure des Beaux-Arts of Paris : Théo Audoire, Anaïs Barras, Arthur Dokhan, Daniel Nicolaevsky Maria, Sophie Torrell, Felipe Vasquez.

The sequel to Harvey's adventures happened in a 5-hours performance on a large beach scenography presented during the DO DISTURB performance festival at the Palais de Tokyo. It was written in collaboration with the director Tanguy Malik Bordage for eleven actors and a music composer.

Stranded on a Caribbean beach after scuttling the ship on which he had embarked, Harvey meets its weird and crazy inhabitants. Stuck on the edge of the jungle on this deadly boredom beach's, his encounters makes him doubt the merits of his adventure.

This performance is written in a narrative progression alternating moments of written theatrical play as well as a multitude of simple and repetitive actions betraying the boredom and torpor in which the characters are immersed in this in-camera.
Life is old there is a like a diorama in which time has been distended by the tropical heat.
