Experiment Ionesco


Experiment Ionesco is an adaptation of Ionesco’s ”The Chairs”. I wanted the

sound for the piece to emerge from extreme loneliness. I wanted the actors to

hear with their own ears how the loneliness is pumping through, making music

and allowing them to be joyful. The chairs, the memories, started to change

and they needed string to be tighten together… in order not to escape from

the fragile spasm of happiness of the two characters. I developed the piece in

Wickham Theatre while studying at Bristol University. Happiness lies in sadness

and sadness lies in happiness. Old people lie in young people and young people

lie in old people. The 2 characters – ‘Semiramis’ and ‘My Little Pet’ – have their

memories constructed and then deconstructed under the pressure of the deep

isolation from their own life.
