2020 – 72 minutes – France

Talking, moving, playing at being ‘another’. Relying on the help of phonetics at first. Then, as the sessions develop, the sentences unfold, even resonate. A tirade is a hit. An error makes everyone laugh. Russian, Pashtun and Arabic invite themselves between the lines… Guram, Irina, Mohammad, Eugenie, Abdelaziz, Marina and Adam, striving to integrate in France, meet every week at the “Emotions Theater”. They have made a bet to be on stage in a few months to perform a play nourished by their story.
