Be Festival

Légende by Romain Teule (France/Portugal) – 30 min

A performance lecture on the nature of language, Légende unpicks the different kinds of questions produced by words. Beginning with a fictional language of the birds, Romain Teule’s show probes the different possibilities to be found in words. Living and working between France and Portugal, his show was originally performed in Portuguese; adapting it for BE 2017, his existential questions will now be posed in English. Uncovering the instances where words fail, and what powers they have, it’s a thoughtful show prompting re-evaluations about what things we take for granted.

A 30 minute version of the show will be presented
