What if theater could ask itself the question “I is an other?”. Collectif Impatience proposes a performance with no one on stage – a textual and imaginative collaboration with the audience in real time, which scratches beneath the surface.

Lumen Texte is a performance for a video projector and an empty stage. Lumen Texte is a text that speaks on its own behalf, in words directed at the audience. The dramaturgy of this address, central to the process, weaves a web of connections between the text, the audience, the space, the bodies present and the time spent together as a group.

Engaging with the audience on the possibilities for experiencing a shared moment, the words tell stories and sometimes call for action, but without us ever knowing whether the performance will change course. In the midst of the “spectator-animals” and the words generated, a multitude of encounters take shape, bringing to the fore the questions raised by transhumanism and the possibility that coding may one day dominate human life.
