I've always been interested in a form of primitivity.  Performance draws its origins from ancient Greek theatre.  With Ô MONTAGNE, I wanted to plunge into mythology, approaching a theatre where voice, song, dance, tragedy, and burlesque are not yet separated into disciplines or genres, but take part in a single celebration.
The voice emerged immediately as a territory for exploring movement, becoming the principal catalyst investing the body and producing action.  Vocalising the stories without saying them, allowing the motifs that they contain to circulate, to play freely with the figures, inventing a theatre without intrigue, a lyrical poetry, deliberately rudimentary and operatic.
