Presentation

  • For Séverine Chavrier, a literary work is a universe she enters and whose richness she tries to render on stage. By choosing J. G. Ballard as a source of inspiration for her show, she favours a science fiction writer who shifted this genre towards an introspective analysis of our consumer society, through a reflection on the image and new technologies. Displaying absolute confidence in the stage, a place of the imagination and sharing, she builds a theatrical and musical proposal that brings in other authors who resonate with J. G. Ballard and three of his major works: Crash, Running Wild and Millennium People. The idea is in no way to illustrate these novels' worlds but to make them spring out in an environment of images and sounds occupying the space on the same footing as the actors. Images created on stage, images of daily life filmed by omnipresent smartphones and webcams, video-surveillance images, or archive images mixing sounds of all kinds: the actors' voices, recordings and live music. Everything converges to question our technological world and its violence, its pitfalls, its anxiety-provoking potential, its more or less accepted and digested brutality, but also our capacity to resist, our ambivalence, our responsibility or our immaturity. With Ultimate Track, Séverine Chavier invites us to a free and energetic critique. JFP
