Human Collision / Atomic Reaction
Making its première as part of «La Nouvelle Scène» at the Festival de Théâtre des Amériques, this multi-disciplinary work draws its inspiration from the work of Stephen Hawking, whose theories propose a new way of scientifically understanding the universe. It is also inspired by the astro-physicist himself, who suffers from a degenerative disease that deprives him of the use of speech and confines him to a wheelchair. Interactions between elemental particles and relations between human beings are placed in parallel as though part of the same logical progression, and everyday behaviour becomes an eloquent metaphor for highly complex scientific theories.
