Following ‘Pleine Nuit’, which was conceived in 2016 during the Salle Favart’s renovation, the Opéra Comique is delighted to welcome back Christian Boltanski, Jean Kalman and Franck Krawczyk with this new performance which will be presented at the Centre Pompidou from 3rd November 2019 to 16th March 2020 as part of the retrospective exhibition dedicated to Christian Boltanski. The performance will take place level-1 at the Berger carpark, right below the Centre Pompidou.

Since 2001, the three artists, who come from different backgrounds, have been working on a new form of performance based on the following three rules: the given space constitutes the foundation of the libretto, the performance has no beginning nor end (the public can come and go at any time) and, finally, the spectator is invited to roam about the stage space rather that sit before it.

Alike Dante or Orpheus, the viewer wanders around an unknown space, immersed in what goes on below the surface, under the stage, shifting one’s attention to what tends to be customarily hidden. Fosse, or the opera as a mise en abyme.

Created for a soprano, a principal cello, a choir, 12 cellos, 6 pianos, drums and electric guitares.
