ANYWHERE traces with gentleness and strength a poetic journey, in black and white, of fire and ice, which speaks to us about our bodies, our fragilities, our wanderings in the infinite circle of renewal. Freely inspired by the novel ‘Oedipus on the road’ by Henry Bauchau ANYWHERE evokes the long wandering of Oedipus accompanied by his daughter Antigone. The fallen Oedipus appears in the form of an ice puppet that gradually turns into water then into mist and disappears in the Erynian Forest, the place of clairvoyance. The inner evolution of this mystical character is in the image of the metamorphosis of water. The spectator is invited to live an experience: to be one with the transformed material.

Anywhere won the Award of the Vice major of the city of Ostrava in October 2018.
Anywhere won the Bauchau Price in 2017.


“Everyone will eventually have to recall the itinerary of their dreams and draw up in heaven and on earth the unknown route which corresponds to their inner image.”
