›l'art de la fuite‹ is the second creation by the Swedish performer/director Rasmus Ölme made with his REFUG-collective and in collaboration with Max Cuccaro who is also well known as a performer in several Wim Vanderkeybus/Ultima Vez productions.
It's a theatre and dance performance about 'escaping'. About defence mechanisms. About having no choice and finding out which one it is.
Someone has been buried alive; I'm in court accused of murder, insisting on my innocence, resisting and left alone with my cowardice. Give me some more time, just five minutes, just the time to close my windows. A small girl in a dress stands on the windowsill, looking away from me. She turns around, smiles at me, waves her hand and starts flying backwards out in the emptiness. "You go, and I promise not to die before you're back", she says. I'm leaning on a chair, my fingernails carving the wood. I will not let myself sit down. What is left for me to do?
