“There are three kinds of men: the living, the dead, and those who sail the sea.”
It’s 00:55; night’s heavy mantle shrouds the port in darkness. A bewildered woman climbs aboard a sailboat to cross the Atlantic. The Milky Way illuminates the vast expanse of water she is languidly contemplating. The adventure begins: she ventures into her inner night. To survive until dawn; to survive, and come out stronger.
After more than sixteen years of navigating theatrical waters, and several sailing voyages on the Atlantic, Magali Lemèle has crafted a poetic, highly original stage piece that combines her two passions.
An early draft of the script was presented last winter at Espace René-Provost, as part of a carte blanche given by Sylvie Dufour. Magali is currently out at sea, camera in hand, and will come ashore at the Zones Théâtrales in September.
