Ma Maison

Mélanie Verville

Bhutto performance in collaboration with the composer Félix-Antoine Morin.

To return, as in Miron’s poem “to a home that was built in one’s absence.” To return or to arrive. To revisit, recognize and remember. Relive, replay, reinvent. To invent oneself, like in Barbara’s song, as a country, as a house, a forest, a garden, a room, and a bed. To nomadically inhabit earthly and spiritual places and non-places. To enter bodies as one would a house and this house-being. To be in one’s body, as with Artaud, “at a crossroad which is inhabited by all.” To compose a fleeting monument.
