“La Traversée du langage” -in french- is a three-act play written especially for OSGrid. It is not theater to watch from a sitting room, but a narrative experience to be lived through your avatar. 

The subject is language and its effects on humanity. The text is presented as an interior monologue in which a female voice and a male voice are mixing each other, on the model of the stream of consciousness as in Virginia Woolf or James Joyce, for example. A text that is at the same time philosophical, dreamlike, mythological, even mystical, and woven from multiple references to other works, novels, films, or mythological characters like Ulysses or Oedipus. A text that the scenario of building inworld and the music of the words in audio underline to facilitate the feeling, the emotions … 

It is a journey through the three acts in a stage set that always seems the same but whose animations each time different make you feel what the text tells. The first act is called: “The waves. Traversing vibrations ”, it evokes the emergence of life and then of articulated language. The second: “The mirrors. Traversing representations “, evokes the illusions engendered by images and writing. The third: “The clocks. Traversing the Worlds “evokes the folly of imagining the world as a book and books as worlds. 

The decor is inspired by a film, L’Année dernière à Marienbad, by filmmaker Alain Resnais, one of the representatives of the late 1950’s French cinema movement called the New Wave.
