RuminantesJuly 1, 2019 - September 18, 2019
On the billboard will lay beasts, half asleep beasts, attentive to the to and fro movements of their stomachs, ruminants trying to stay up, or to lie down, as if they had nothing else to do : inhabit, digest, make their cords vibrate. And repeat – maybe practise – interior gestures. I will write the action of ruminating, it will last for a moment, or the billboard’s own time, and when the moment comes, I will concentrate on leaving a place for another, answering each time to the voice that sings in the distance – and resonates within – when it calls its herd.

On mime chants. Along with Étienne Decroux (Noroît), she was rewarded the Spirale Eva-Le-Grand prize as well as the award Contre-jour de l’essai littéraire.
