Synopsis

Moreno Bernardi unfolds Koltès’s text and multiples the perspectives of the character’s concerns: two strangers look for, and only sometimes find, contact that calms them and feeds their need to talk, to undress, and, finally, to find a place where they can be, where they can love, where they can live. Where these men talk about their struggle to fit in in a world controlled by power, constantly hiding in the shadows that make them feel foreign and extremely alone. The audience (an accidental witness) decide what they see, what they take away, what they want to feel from these two strangers: like two shadows, they run around on the last and only night of their lives on the brink of exhaustion, looking for a shoulder on which they can lay their heads.

The text La nuit juste avant les forêts by a young Bernard-Marie Koltès (1976) is one of his most popular, due to the freedom with which it can be read: from a political pamphlet to a street poem, from violence to an authentic search for love.

The year 2020 will see its 43rd birthday, yet it is as current as ever.
