A figure in search of his identity guides the spectators on the traces of his image through a wandering and visual form which is based on the text ” Seuils ” by Patrick Kermann.

a stroll in the night under the guidance of a passeur, a gure in search of identity, in the trail of her image. Chiaroscuro : the doors open, seven tresholds show up, seven stages of light where are played successive scenes belonging to the in-between : narrow pass between inside and outside, being and seeming, presence and absence, life and death…

Ah what glow will tear the in-between? In her house she will not be seen.
Neither inside nor outside she will see her image. On the threshold only.
Here. Where what is hidden is offered, where what is revealed is erased.
