Alexandra Badea


"How to swallow the cruelty of the world?"

A few days before the performance, a text is written from photographs circulating on the internet. They are drawn from the contemporary chaos. Issued from another point of the globe, this text is returned by the voice of Alexandra Badea, as an invitation to correspondence. On the stage, the author/actrice and the guitarist Benjamin Collier. The writing being done is projected on a screen. Over the photos, the voice and the words, the musician adds his own clamor of resistance to the violence spread by the media.
