2016 edition
Place Graslin
La syzygie
James Webb

South African artist, James Webb, has decided to probe the soul of Théâtre Graslin.

After inviting different experts (an architect, an astrologist, an historian, a stage manager, a medium, and a psychologist) to visit the theatre and “read” the space through the prism of their discipline, he created with the playwright Louis Viljoen a “play” personifying the theatre.

The different voices are played throughout the opera house, enveloping the visitor. And, if you listen closely, you might hear it dreaming. With the voices of Mélodie Abad et Olivier Birene.
