Once upon a time is an instrumental theater show where the music, through its dramatic dimension and its gestures, takes on a humorous, critical, parodic or esoteric character…
On the menu: Living-room music for percussion and “discussion quartet” which, like Satie’s furniture music, suspends time and can be tasted like a snapshot; then a composition inspired by Murnau’s silent film Nosferatu featuring the fierce and tragic struggle of a pianist with a metronome, whose beat is permanently disrupted and, as the icing on the cake, the manifestation of an “incarnate nail” who joins in the game…

So many action scenes with a strange, amusing, fantastic, fascinating or ridiculous character that also have the characteristic of questioning the notion of musical work.
