Her name is Suzy Storck. Married Hans Vassili Kreuz, a man who just kissed him without loving him. This is where the spiral of obligations began: to bear children, to take care of a house, to comply with marital duties … Then one day, in the middle of summer, something went wrong. Under the weight of heat and repeated gestures, Suzy realizes his renouncements and his inability to live according to his true desires.
A pile of clothes, a washing machine, a ceiling covered with neon lights: Simon Delétang projects the text of Magali Mougel into the radical whiteness of a bare space. As in the ancient tragedy, the drama is played out here. A choir locates, comments, puts at a distance. Everything goes through speech. Out of all naturalism, it is the actors who, in public, embody the words and the intensity of the scenes. Like a scathing oratorio, Suzy Storck carries the voice of all women imprisoned in a slavishly ordered slavish existence.
