Spectacle initialement intitulé La Réparation (titre provisoire)

For Lorraine de Sagazan and Guillaume Poix, theatre is a place to connect with other people. By listening to those who have not been able to bury their loved ones, those in exile or in prison, those who take care of the bereaved or who are trying to put back together that which has been broken within them by violence and abandonment, the two artists attempt to trace the contours of our age.

  1. That is how many people Lorraine de Sagazan and Guillaume Poix met, over the course of a year, whilst writing Un Sacre. Every day, they tried to break the isolation caused by the health crisis by talking for several hours to someone they didn’t know, in an effort to understand the significance of the word healing, in either personal or professional life. In doing so, they collected a series of stories as varied as they are incredible.
    “Each person shared something with us that they had never told anyone”, reveals the director. “That is what makes these words so rare and precious”. Like the professional mourners of times past, the superb actors in this performance bear a sorrow which is not their own. In this space where the utopia of the stage is made real, they conjure a piece of theatre for the present day. The true stories they impart to us, in a shared desire to heal the world and to celebrate freedom, human dignity, and that which is sacred, question the very meaning of fiction. Does it actually have the capacity to heal reality?
