L’écoute d’une émotion

October 11‑14, 2023

Arts & Entertainment

In a radio studio, a woman is getting ready to start her show. Suddenly, she grabs the microphone, struggling to find the words to tell the story of her incandescent passion for a man who seems like her total opposite. Here, desire is spoken aloud: this woman may be playing with fire, but she’s also living more passionately, opening the door to a potential encounter with the self. In this masterful play by author and sociologist Marie-Laurence Rancourt, the bewitching texture of that voice and the swirl of thoughts it conveys resonate in our very bones. Anyone who’s ever had a platonic relationship with a radio host (Myra Cree comes to mind) will rediscover, in this intimate theatrical gem, the exhilarating state of listening to a voice that, while addressing the masses, seems secretly to be saying, “Deep down, you’re the only one I’m talking to.”
