To work in Finland, the unemployed choose to leave and keep reindeer in the Far North. Some do not resist the solitutde and commit suicide by leaving their shelters in the middle of the night, naked in the snow. This story has become the theme of a performance given by Thierry Fournier, one which uses a system of sound to explore a sculpture made by Jean-François Robardet.
The performance « Frost » is an extract from « Conférences du dehors », a project designed and directed by Thierry Fournier, performed by Emmanuelle Lafon and created at La Chartreuse – Centre national des écritures du spectacle. Performances on 15th - 23rd July, at La Chartreuse, during the Festival of Avignon.
