Landscapes of our tears - Theatre performance by Collectif Kahraba
Job, the mythic character from the biblical “Book of Job”, frequently comes to mind when living in the Middle East. He who, upon his bed of ashes, curses the day he was born. He who has lost everything, yet disavows nothing. « Landscapes of our tears » displays the inner geography of Job, the jagged contours of his soul. The author, Matéi Visniec, depicts a broken man who, beyond his suffering, still believes that the human being is a miracle on earth.
Body in motion and masked body, puppets, projected images, manipulation of objects are the on-set tools used to write the visual poetry of this work. Roger Assaf gives his voice and interpretation to the Job of Visniec. Dominique Pifarely, violinist renowned in the improvisational Jazz scene, composes and interprets the music of this visual poem.
