    This text written by Christophe TOSTAIN traces a man’s life that dwells in residential area. Alone, he is running away from an aseptic society where he is forced to live in.

    The set borrows these residential area codes. It proposes different point of views of the stage to each spectator. The primroses on the floor direct the performers’ entrance and exit movements, like signage in urban space.

    Text read on March 23 2018, during “Actuelles XXFestival in TAPS Laiterie Theater in Strasbourg, France.
