L’absent – La Compagnie du Geste qui Sauve (Belgium)

A woman lives alone. Though she also lives with an absence – that of the man who shared her life before death. The only remaining signs of his presence are the objects he once used. The lamp, the book shelves, the scarf, the coat, everything is still impregnated with his smell and his gestures. But now that he is gone, how can she reconstruct her life? How can she become oblivious to his absence? A love story.

The company members met during their studies at the Kleine Academie in Belgium. Fascinated by gesture theatre as a universal language, L’Absent is their first project.
