TELLEMENT FLÛTE   Performance, 7min, 2013

 

collaborative project with Marie Duclos and Raphaël Douvier

 

This performance is an alternative view of Papageno, one of the characters of the “Magic Flute” by Mozart. In that world, Papageno is a stammering man, trying to express himself. The video is made as a tv documentary about his life. In the performance, three characters play the main theme of the “Magic Flute” with weird instruments like a sexual doll flute. That “orchestra” starts when Papageno tries to say his name and get stuck in a syllable rhythm. It appears that nobody, except him, is understandable.
