There is nothing in my life that shows that I am ugly on the inside

Création 2021
Show for general audiences, 14 and up

Lenght: 1h20

A woman in a fur coat.

Her body lying on the ground.

On the kitchen floor.

Her sole baggage, a handbag, a handkerchief and a lipstick.

She only has one shoe.

A voice addresses her, questions her, provokes her.

It is the beginning of a series of disjoint moments, random pieces of a puzzle that we try to put together from clues which we do not know if they are imaginary or not, fragments of destinies and of deaths.

At once playful and dramatic.

The piece investigates the identity of a woman. She is lost. One and multiple, she performs, before our eyes, the theatrical autopsy of her life.

The shoe, is it under the bathtub?

Agnes Limbos has always been passionate about the power of the objet as an actor in its own right and about the actor’s ability to manipulate it.

The kitchen table, at a corner of the stage, becomes a miniature of that stage where the manipulated objects reconstitute everyday scenes.

The objects serve to tell stories, others evoke souvenirs or stimulate the memory….
