There would be three jugglers in the night, juggling balls, and magic…
We could imagine three characters in a closed space, it’s night, and it’s dark. This is our backdrop, without image nor sound. Suddenly, a noise which calls for the light, some figures, a flame, a ball. Those are the protagonists. Now each figure is trying to invest itself in the order of the things, to occupy the night:this is not a ball anymore, this is a crowd, a flock, a vermin which enters through doors and windows. This is a swarm, an anthill, maybe a tribe. Pulled out from their night, shapes are then appearing. A face meeting another one. Life organises itself to try to stay quiet and bring darkness back, despite everything.
There are many mysteries. And this light which continuously breaks the order of time. Proximity allows noises to flee on every side. Spectator’s eyes get used to the low light of some candles. And then, all perceptions wear a tinge of the magical spirit.
