L’Oublié(e) is a sort of tale :
A woman whose man (father or lover?) has been in a coma for years is waiting for him to wake up. It’s as if she has stopped living. She’s getting old. She decides to put herself into a coma to go get him there. She launches into a quest through a parallel world made of hallucinations and extraordinary situations in order to track him down. There, she meets women of the past and temporarily joins them.
Sometimes, she manages to catch the man’s body and drags it along with her (he is still lifeless, even in this world of the unconscious). Many times, she is reanimated, they tear her from this world to try to bring her back to life. But she always decides to slide back into it, she throws herself into accidents, to get back with this man.
"Directed by Raphaëlle Boitel, this company are remarkable; they bend, they dance, they sing, they soar
impossibly throught the air.”
The Irish Independent, Nov. 13 2015
“L'Oublié(e) is full of surprises and it's a feast for the eyes".
