The audience is greeted at the garden of the theatre by four museum guides and the tour begins. A precious collection of art works is exhibited in this museum, including living « tableaux » of women.
The first part of the performance takes place outside the theatre,but inside the intimate world of women. The open space gradually closes in on the audience which moves inside the theatre where it is confronted with the external views entertained about women today. It is at this point that the four actresses meet a new accomplice, the video imagery. Having finally arrived on stage, the “roles” are forgotten as well as the images. What then remains of it all?
We have to end what we have begun, right?
I am looking for the sense in all this.
How did it all start?
And what have I managed to control in all this?
The hula-hoop !
Much more profound than I thought.
