“En attendant que les poissons passent..." is a dance-theatre performance built around the concept of "waiting".
A wooden box lies in the middle of the scene. On top of it, an empty aquarium is placed ...
Then, where are the fishes?
The show is a solo-performance of 45 minutes, a running time in which we, together with the author, experience a wait that captivates us through dance, theatre, pure performance, as well as through moments of interactions between author and public, play, and surprise.
The author drew inspiration from the poetry of Giacomo Leopardi to covey the concept of “waiting”:
Waiting gives us access to the unknown, to the unreal, and to the abstract. It allows us to daydream and travel towards the objects of our desire without being stuck in reality.
Therefore, the act of waiting becomes "infinite pleasure".
"Boredom is the noblest of human feelings, since it shows us the inadequacy of existing things face to the greatness of Desire."
