One of my main lines of work is the staging of the very process of writing, the dramaturgy (thus the interest for the spectator) of the creative operation: how the encounter with objects, the confrontation between imagination and reality creates ideas and concepts.
It is a proposal of regular short films, associated with their context of appearance. I’m working on a new meaning of the inductor “Once upon a time...”, which I replace with “Imagine for a moment...”.
“Once upon a time...” is the driving force behind fairy tales, plunging into a totally imaginary world. A way of enlightening ourselves, while entertaining us, by connecting the narrated fiction (fully external to reality, therefore with a symbolic dimension) to the deep myths that govern us.
“Let’s imagine for a moment...” is the driver of the surrealist shift, the distortion of reality. A way of clarifying the fact that the very notion of reality is profoundly subjective. A proposal to distance oneself, to try to touch more closely what escapes us in the lived experience.
