Interactive theater: Quand le soir tient le jour enfermé

This « obscure poem » was rediscovered by Pascal Quignard after having been forgotten for centuries, last remembrance of the Greek poet Lycophron. This 3d-century BC poem tells the mysterious prophecies of the one who was called crazy, in a condensed and sensitive language.

This opening will present the first stage of a work on a man-machine interaction plateform, through an avatar communicating by gestures. The moving scenery, a monumental digital projection on the set and the actress, is combined with spatialized sound immersing the audience in Lycophron’s obscure poem. Gestures are generated with a genetic algorythm, and the whole set is generated by computer and evoles with the voice of the actress.
