Is the final urge of Marguerite Duras to express the transition between life and death. We have gathered around her last fascinating words where she is sharing her longing back to life and her fear of dying, thus losing everything.
This text has gathered us because it resembles us of our own experiences facing death. Based on all these elements we hope to share with you a visual, audial, physical journey into a landscape beyond death.

Teatermaskinen has been researching C´est tout by Marguerite Duras on numerous occasions since 1998 because of its poetical density.
And because it addresses art, love, death, memory and the process of dying.

C´est tout is the development of the research project Temporary Monad where we have been exploring sound, vibration, bodies and their internal relations.

The work with C´est tout started two years ago as a joint research between artistic director Jonas Engman, composer Kenneth Cosimo, videoartist Mirjam Hector, actress Berit Engman and dancer/choreographer Amanda Billberg and Ana Zavala of Integro Peru. C´est tout introduces our first collaboration with dancer Ellinor Ljungkvist.

We also extract material from the sounds and the filmed vibrations of sound that Kenneth Cosimo and Mirjam Hector gathered during a five-year collaboration under the name TgwNon.

In the next phase we will include an interactive exhibition with paintings, video and sound installations that will be presented in museum spaces opening at KRLSG2 in Västerås in March 2016.

When the piece tours, it will be performed by different actresses in the mother tongue of each country. Project partners are La Communauté inavouable(France), Meta Theater Münich(Germany), ExQuorum(Portugal).
