The quieter it is, the better we get along. Renée van Trier, a transdisciplinary artist, mourns the loss of the comfort of disconnected life. Her open-hearted musical performances rack up extravagant characters, as universally endearing as they are disturbing, in explosive vocal tones. In this new creation, she explores the tension that constantly feeds us, between our desire to detach ourselves from others and from objects, and our fear of irreversible loss. Renée van Trier makes us promise: her songs will soothe our anxieties, heal our torments and make us smile for weeks.
