I AM THE WIND, Jon Fosse
English text : Simon Stephens,
Patrice Chéreau, Thierry Thieû Niang
The wind was threatening and it rose suddenly. There are two of them on a brittle boat: an excursion at sea, a stop in a creek, a glass of schnapps, and a little food. And so one of them decides to push further on towards the high seas. And here we are, on the high seas _ if only this: to symbolize on a theater stage, the journey, the trip, the islands offshore, the fog and the ocean, calm and soon threatening. To symbolize in a same move the crossing of the channel and the depression’s shadow kept at a distance and that forcefully strikes back; brotherhood, love? It slowly becomes unbearable, something that carries such little weight, until the final accident which will bring calm and peace and lightness, finally.
A journey inside two intertwined lives, an odyssey, a paradoxical path towards appeasement.
