Le puzzle n’est pas un jeu solitaire — Épisode 6
Le puzzle n’est pas un jeu solitaire
Past: Sunday, May 4, 2014 at 6 PM
On February 8th, a pilot episode of the sitcom Puzzling is not a Solitary Game took place in the Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers. Through a strange melange of performances, lectures and opera singing, Adva Zakai and Åbäke, along with their guests and public, addressed private spaces such as the apartment, the computer, the body — as potential zones of invention and political resistance. The artists continue their investigation and invite you, in April and May, to take part in the coming six episodes, which will be performed in Aubervilliers inside private living-rooms and in printed publications.
The sixth and last episode takes place on Sunday May 4th, at Mr Feffer, who lives in a house next to Aubervilliers’s down town. For these live episodes, inhabitants of Aubervilliers will open their doors to the public and become new protagonists of a story told in pieces inside their apartments. One apartment will turn into a labyrinth that leads to the neighbours living-room, another will become the board of a cluedo game that no one will ever end up playing, the third one will transform into a cafe-concert… Elements of the plot will also find their way into various publications which will be distributed in the city and beyond, spreading like an urban legend and introducing new pieces of the puzzle. A fragmented novel will gradually be written and its narratives will travel through public, private, actual and virtual spaces. It will narrate a tale inspired by Aubervilliers today, but which could also belong to any other city, or even to any other time and space.
