The performance will last 1 hour and 30 minutes


After “Without Lear” and “Sans Paroles”, the performance “Light Bulb” may be called “An Evening without explanation”.

The play, which has virtually no spoken word, was developed from free improvisation.

We try to research the world of chaos, the world of cosmic darkness in which play and creativity are the only generator of light.

Without explanation…what else could the performance be about?

Maybe this poem will suggest an association to the audience.



Free The Goldfish

By Charles Simic


A pet store window

With an aquarium

We pressed our noses against

Every night.


For light, the goldfish had

A single bulb

On a long naked wire

Tied into a noose.


They swam to and fro glancing

Over their shoulders

At the empty shelves,

The street beyond with its dark shadows.


Its rows of parked cars

On which a few large snowflakes

Fell carefully

As if not to make a sound.
