on texts by Ghérasim Luca

A tale of initiation and seduction, Comment s’en sortir sans sortir? is a celebration of the magical powers of music. Elise Dabrowski and Claudine Simon are only two on stage and yet it is an opera for voice, double bass, piano and electronic music that they compose and perform.

Heirs to the long tradition of fairies and magicians, from Purcell to Wagner, from Melusine to Starhawk, they are contemporary witches who take us into a dreamlike universe where pianos move and bows fly; a world where the hypnotic language of Gherasim Luca is spoken and where plants react to music. In this opera that questions our relationship with other living beings, we glimpse the mystery of matter through the spell of music and voice.
