Alone on stage

This performance is taken from an original text by Antoine Chabelo, in which the author and actor stands alone on stage in the role of the old man, with his old chair as his refuge, his books as lovers and a small suitcase, in which the objects of his entire life are held. Still brave, angry and rebellious, returning to technological and scientific progress, the end of biodiversity and climate change, the text has undergone constant modifications to talk about today, between pandemics and a dying world, but also humor and hope in a dying world. A calm, balanced and shared future. Aging, the end of life, and the relationship between overpopulation and over-consumption are also themes that preoccupy this character. He has anger and above all a good dose of self-deprecation.
