Hurler sous la lune (Mathias Varenne)

2019

Theater/Video/Music - 80 mn


A story is told. First we witness its construction and then its transformation, as if we are looking through a hallucinating prism that distorts the words and images. Following his research at L’L about the poetry of the beat generation and the work of Allen Ginsberg, Brussels-based artist Mathias Varenne has created Hurler sous la lune. Varenne is fascinated by the importance of orality and storytelling, and yet he questions here the custom of perpetuating one single version (History with a capital H) that disregards the existence of a multiplicity of accounts (histories). Influenced by science-fiction practices, Varenne offers a new form of storytelling with this project. By combining text, video, light, and sound, Hurler sous la lune has the form of a narration that is progressively filtered, as if by a chemical substance or a kaleidoscopic lens; a gesture to remind us that our world, locked in its pragmatic narrations, definitely needs unusual stories, images and heroes.
