Parlement

Parlement is a solo piece for an actress composed using the Encyclopédie de la parole’s collection of recordings. These recordings led to a particular form of theater writing that did not imply editing and composing texts, but rather sounds. By sending a hundred or so voices through a single body—that of Emmanuelle Lafon—Parlement produces a poetic and transformative discourse marked by the diversity of human speech. Created in 2009, Parlement is the first performance of Encyclopédie de la parole.
