Les passantes / The elderly

Les passantes (the elderly) is a performance about old women’s souvenirs in a retirement home.
About the act of taking care and the fear of being forgotten.
An old song with half of the lyrics missing.

Presented at the gallery Apollonia Art Exchanges in Strasbourg (2008) and on a theater stage at the World Puppets Theater Festival of Charleville-Mézières (2010), and at the Berlin gallery Raum für drastische Maßnahmen (2016).

Musical arrangement of the song Parlez moi d’amour for hand-played music box by Jeff Benignus.
