In La Voix Humaine, two lovers are attached through a telephone cord, each totally alone, yet talking without seeing or touching each other. This bold new production of Poulenc and Cocteau's opera deals with disembodiment and with the difficulties of communication when technology is the interface between two people. Since the mediation of technology defines all kinds of relationships today, this theme is more relevant than ever. Using improvisatory acting informed by the Lecoq technique, Poulenc's sensual and emotionally intense music will be brought vividly to life.
