Reverso or two sides of the same page, two characters in mirror.
I am one, I am two.
Is it me in the reflection? Is it someone else?
Is this drunk woman who laughs and falls the image of the absurdity of my own existence? Why does this disturbing strangeness suddenly seem so familiar to me?
Reverso pokes fun at these questions in strange physical situations that are appear on stage.
Taking possession of the few objects placed there – wigs, sneakers, chairs – silhouettes take shape and slide from one state to another. They stumble through several elusive realities, not caring about the border between floor and wall, backstage and stage, play and life.
Testing themselves in the game of similarities, the bodies converse without speaking, filling the relationship with the other with solitude and strangeness…
Little by little, excess takes over, the border between dream and reality blurs and leads the character(s) to lose themselves in their own unconscious.
