L’Appartement à trous (the apartment with holes) is Patrick Corillon’s way of exploring expressive potential in the theater of objects, mixing words with images. The monologue performance teems with irony. The storytelling talent of the visual artist whisks us away on a voyage in languages. → part of the Villette en cirque program

The Play

Behind his wooden table, with a decidedly sparse set, Patrick Corillon brings his characters to life through narration and drawings. He found the resistance of Ossip Mandelstam inspiring. To remain hopeful, the Russian poet would tell stories to his cellmates in Siberia. “I’ve always believed in the words of others. My grandmother taught me that. Always believe what others tell us.”

Stories can save us. Do they accomplish this because they have the power to take us out of this world or, on the contrary, because they give us the strength to confront harsh realities? The apartment with holes is part of the cycle Les Vies en soi (Lives in oneself). Patrick Corillon digs into his own childhood and serves us a mix of autobiographical and fictional elements.

Simple, healthy, affordable food will be on sale up to one hour before the show begins.
