What is true love? Who has been in love with whom? Who is telling the truth?
Four narrators with different mother tongues tell us the story of two married couples. It all starts with a forty-year-old man on his deathbed who declares his love for his wife. But this “all” is not what it seems. Colored by their accents, the language becomes collaborative and builds a fresco of love in all its truth and illusion.
Through the perspective of Manolis Antoniou, a multilingual director of Greek origin, monologues addressed directly to the audience, with no other artifice than the voice, the gaze and the truth of the four performers, weave four love stories that become one. A tangled journey of death, loyalty and chaos, truth and fiction. All these performers ask of the audience is to listen.
Some passages will move you, and others are more sensitive. Please be advised.
This is a bilingual show (French and English).
