- Irène Jacob
Under the direction of composer and producer Roland Auzet, Irène Jacob treats us to a quite extraordinary theatrical performance.
In The Human Voice, Jean Cocteau reveals the loneliness of a woman deserted by her lover, who calls him on the telephone in an attempt to put off the moment of separation. Disappear here, from German dramatist Falk Richter, also invokes the burden of absence through the journey of a character in search of a loved one. These two texts inspired Roland Auzet to create his latest play: a remarkable work which places the audience above a perspex stage on which actor Irène Jacob performs.
A veritable acoustic platform, the space designed for VxH – The Human Voice allows us to observe and experience the play from all possible angles. Following La Nuit les brutes in 2010 and Dans la solitude des champs de coton in 2015 (at the Part-Dieu shopping centre), Roland Auzet continues to reinvent how it feels to be a spectator. Through an intimate connection with the theatrical and sound-based narrative, we discover what it feels like to see, to not see, to see without being seen or to be seen without really wanting to… This is a unique sensory experience.
