ŠRÁMY/la débattue WORK IN PROGRESS
"...I'm sitting, I'm cold, I can no longer feel my fingers, I'm so very cold, Tabarnak. I asked the French
if they knew about La débattue. they said no. it must be a Swiss thing that women from Marseille are
lucky (or perhaps unlucky) not to know... for now ... " 21.2.2017 S.N'Duhirahe
ŠRÁMY is a solo which at the same time is not a solo
--- It can be performed by one or several artists depending on how I feel or on the place where it is performed.
ŠRÁMY is a project of living dramaturgy
--- Represents sequences of life in an unorganized manner, pieces that are cut out or pasted randomly in the course of time.
ŠRÁMY is an attempt to create an open performance structure
--- Allows hosting performers to create a new interpretation of an existing sequence including their own insight.
ŠRÁMY unites different ways of making art
--- Uses drawing, writing, sound… to achieve a unique visual and physical effect.
ŠRÁMY shows human body and speaks about it.
--- Human body which feels, hurts, records, remembers and forgets. Human body receiving marks
ŠRÁMY means scars
--- Marks of recollections, fragments of life and moments in time.
What is remembrance?
What do we and what do our bodies hold from different stories of life?
How can we speak about pain?
With the site specific project Šrámy/ la débattue, using stones and ropes, Stéphanie N'Duhirahe questions the relation between body, remembrance and our connection with pain.
Šrámy is a collaboration with people from different backgrounds who can bring different perspectives to speak about this theme. The performance is built around the function of a specific place over a specific period of time so the show will always be a new experience and different stories will emerge from each time & place.
