Dear Marco, When I enter the Theater of Vanves in the south of Paris, I see a stage framed like an A4 paper, with a 90-degree folded header made of light panel. Indeed, it is a letter from you to “Dear N”, brightly illustrated on the header. You appear on stage, talking to us casually …
Monument 0.10: The Living Monument
The duration of Eszter Salamon’s Monument 0.10 The Living Monument is indicated on the ticket: 2 hours. When the charcoal-black scene emerges from the darkness, I feel like somebody has slowed down my playback. I cannot measure the tempo but I know that a speed of 0.5x will double the duration.

Nuit / Night
It's a tunnel. Or a room. I can see the outside, even as dark as the curtain. It is the air, and the sound of summer night. Here they are, punctual and stoic. Identities differ, subtly amplified by the costume design. Night goes deeper. Movement slows down. At the tunnel exit, mutation starts. Bodies come …
