Move your feet, lose your seat! That morning, the weather was fine. I announced: I’m going hunting! And I went out, greeting Jeff and Jim on the way, followed by my dog Jonas. Back at the house, I pushed open the door. Someone had taken my seat! It wasn’t easy, I had to get used to it. But in the end, he was nice. Basically, I had lost my seat, but I had plenty of room…

This story, which resembles a game of musical chairs, is about giving up a part of one’s life to unknown characters without disappearing. It is going to be about hunting, and about fantastic and surprising wide-open spaces! It will also be a question of coming face to face with someone who has taken your seat…
In a family, these themes could allude to the arrival of another child; in society, they could evoke our capacity to welcome newcomers or even to find our rightful place between human and non-human. Farwest is a playful analysis of the processes that can lead to discomfort, even fear, but also to the joy of creating new relationships and taking advantage of differences in perspective to challenge ourselves.
