“Being in one´s time yet not of one´s time.”
The Alma Alba Theatre Company was created in Geneva, in 2011. It has so far presented three projects : Voix de femmes (Women’s Voices), Muses & Femmes (Muses & Women), Wie der Wolf (Like the wolf) and Votre bonheur est là? (Your happiness is here?). All projects were directed by Lefki Papachrysostomou and carried out in collaboration with teams of actors, musicians, video artists, costume designers, set designers, technicians and scientific advisors.
The Company focuses on research on the performative coexistence of the theatrical text and today’s social reality. On stage, the artists attempt to present through prose, image, sound and movement what today’s life experience seems to be like. The point of view elaborated is not of our time and meets the timelessness. The combination of these two dimensions offers the possibility to the audience to liberate itself from the exclusive influence of time so as to better equilibrate on two axes: horizontally, feet on the ground, and vertically, roots deeply embedded while head in the stars.
