«We’re heading right to the wall ». First sentence of our choral text, which lasts a dozen minutes. Facing their audience, ten actors speak the same words, willing to interrogate and move emotionally. They speak without letting up nor breaking. The use of the chorale speech helps amplifying the power of the text and the energy of each actor in order to create a hard-hitting speech.
This text stands for a Manifesto. It draws up the inventory on the way society works, it stands against a world that can no longer move, and against a generation full of pointless speeches that buries its head in the sand.
