Rentrée

Those who love the sight of closed shutters have to visit Paris in August. At this time Parisians have their breathing space, their holidays. The city is at rest. After this break comes the day ‘Rentrée’, where the people are waiting as though at the starting line for the pistol's shot – but not everyone is happy to start the race all over again... Rentrée is a short performance about a man who has lost his dreams and desires, and who, slowly, has become a waiter. It is poetic, comic and without words.
