A boy feels unloved by his mother and fakes suicide to put her maternal love to the test. A stirring act. An act of provocation? This short early work by Swiss writer Robert Walser explores doubt, befuddlement, desire, and incestuous relationships. Gisèle Vienne tackles these themes to bring out the flaws of human emotions from which conflicting feelings arise.

Gisèle Vienne is an artist that isn’t afraid to straddle lines, genres and mediums. With L’Etang, she takes us into the world of Robert Walser in whose introspective writing the infinitely small sparks barely perceptible seismic tremors. In the work of the Swiss author, the family is seen as a force of domination and submission that sadly reflects the neoliberal society we now live in. Walser can’t put up with it. His writing strives to subvert and warp this law by turning power games on their head. A key aspect of Vienne’s work addresses the violence of the cultural construction of the body. Let the body and emotions speak, think of the body as a subversive element averse to authority. Adolescence is the time and space for this fight against social urgings. Bodies, however hurt or subservient, feel this ability to free themselves and exist as they are. A show for two actresses, Adèle Haenel and Ruth Vega Fernandez, L’Etang inflames passions and emotions through plays of voices, bodies and light. Here children are watching us.
