After Nous pour un moment, Stéphane Braunschweig directs Norwegian author Arne Lygre’s new play. We meet a family: a mother and her two adult children. Other characters soon arrive to intrude upon their intimacy with their stories and disagreements. With his unusual writing style, Lygre dissects the banality of the characters’ lives and reveals the intensity of human fears and passions: love, desire, hate, loneliness, abandon, freedom, staying, leaving… When a character suddenly chooses to disappear, is this rupture meant to be an act of violence or salvation? Lygre doesn’t say as he playfully but profoundly questions what it is that creates the links between people today.
