Le Souper recounts an imaginary encounter between Julia Perazzini and her older brother, who died before she was born. A dialogue through time and space, death and life, that thumbs its nose at chronology, so-called logic and the order of things. By playing her own character in conversation with the imaginary departed, she operates a cathartic, poetic and joyful ritual, which questions the very fact of being. After her acclaimed solo Holes and Hills, Julia Perazzini takes to the stage alone once more to pursue her research into forms of identity, this time via her relationship to the realm of the invisible. “We will journey through Le Souper as we would journey through a long night, wandering through the layers of time. Biting into all of them at once, like a lasagna.”
