Abstract

Pascal Rambert Translated from the French by Nicholas Elliott Three actresses on stage, Silvia Costa, Bárbara Lennie (or Itsaso Arana), and Audrey Bonnet, reclaim the mystery of the annunciation between the Virgin Mary and the Angel Gabriel, played by each of the actresses in her native language. Three monologues, in Italian, Spanish, and French. Three performative speeches explore this motif to question it in the present and draw it toward modernity. Here, the audience becomes the receiver of the revelation, it is in the same position as the Virgin, listening. What could we announce today? What could the contemporary annunciations be? The coming environmental catastrophe? The end of the world? The coming of a new era? A reverse movement? Everything is left open and the imagination rules. o w Rds sPokEN SILVIA what you see you see for the first time the darkness is not the darkness what you hear you hear for the first time close your eyes for this you’ll see you’ll see what you saw but you’ll see it as you see me clearly in the pure brightness but it’s also the blood which you hear because you close your eyes and closing the eyes here
