With FLESH, composed of four short stories for four actor·ress·e·s, Sophie Linsmaux and Aurelio Mergola map human flesh, from every angle.
FLESH brings into play the bruised, raw flesh, but also tender and above all in eternal need of the other. Rooted in his body for better or for worse, the human being is indistinguishable from his flesh, incarnation of his being in the world. However, today, this anchoring tends to disappear.
From a wedding anniversary party to a hospital room, from a virtual reality experience to a family reunion in a café, FLESH is a visual and non-verbal show, a contemporary fable that plunges the spectator into the thickness of our flesh. With humor and strangeness, the STILL Life company stirs us up in an invigorating way : from our bruised flesh to our living flesh, there is only one step.
