Elle respire encore

The spectator is witness to a bustling crowd. Jérémie Niel places thirteen characters in an enclosed space and, despite their differences, they breathe together as one. But for how long?

A bustling crowd, like observing the inhabitants of a building, peering into their windows from across the street. Each has his or her rituals or dramas but together they form a whole, like an anthill where everyone has a place, a role to play.
