Le Raoul is an endless and tireless progress and each show is like a freeze frame of a fertile fantasy, of an insatiable struggle for a common political and artistic sensitivity. Time is an ally, unable to be compressed and intimately linked to journeying. Slowness is a requirement, utopia is the seal of its coat of arms.
It’s been ten years since Romain David, Jérôme de Falloise, David Murgia, Benoît Piret and Jean-Baptiste Szézot have been working together in theatre and music. After Le Signal du promeneur (2012), and Rumeur et petits jours (2015), the third opus is materializing in the distance. Possibly we are being invited to a ceremony. A ceremony that is seeking its rules and its forms, which hesitates when picking its costumes and its protocol. One can make out the historical fantasy of a group looking for absolutes, carting around its ideals, its dreams and its musical instruments.
We are not surprised to find that Don Quixote is at the heart of this new episode. The inexorable quest for meaning will add a lot of heft to this new production. Have patience, our knights errant are on the way.
