In April the French artists presented in Plovdiv at the stage of A'part Theatre the performances 'Moon' and 'The Scriptographer.'
'Moon' sits between the fantastical and the symbolic, a brief caprice in the manner of Goya. It is a short sequence inhabited by unconceivable creatures. An allegory in which both protagonists and marionettes form an mysterious reflection of our minds. The moon is watching over its creatures. Often, under the shelter of our homes and far from nature, we forget that clay monsters rise up to torment our consciousness. Who oversees them, who leads them? Who rules over them? Is it the Moon? This is what we'll be trying to work out in the fogged meanderings of this amusing theatre.
'The Scriptographer' is an atelier-spectacle for writing through the visual. On the table, we will find a roll of paper from China or Arabia or other exotic and distant countries. Driven by creative magic, the roll will present us a subterranean world from which a manipulator crawls to place traps in the middle of the table. The authors and playwrights will build on their writings inspired by the Hades motif. What will be the end of all this? First, a glass of wine for these masters of signs, and then - we will hear each text of each of them, because the language of the writers works to decode.
