L'effort d'être spectateur

First theoretical text of a theatre man, L’effort d’être spectateur gathers thoughts about the relationship between the stage and the audience. The author delivers a lecture, alone among some flying papers and accessories. Some sounds, some lights and experimentations: how can the actor’s voice draw a space? What is the spectator’s cough? What is a performance and a life-threatening situation on a set? Is nudity an option? It is about approaching the work of the artistic team through the prism of meeting the public. The spectator is above all a worker of thought and imagination. The author recounts his experience, his failures, his aspirations, his considerations of the performing arts professions, around the state and the effort to attend a performance.
