Robert Plankett


A HYMN TO MEMORIES
What happens when someone close suddenly disappears? Tricks of the memory, smiles, soft tears come into play.


Robert Plankett has just died, abruptly.  He was a young stage director and his actors, in stunned disbelief, sort out their memories and the things he left behind. Including, among others, a frozen chicken his widow ends up dancing with… Everyone remembers and shares an anecdote, not so much to bring him back to life as to accept his absence. As it happens he is present, silent, as if he too wanted to recover something. Death is necessarily an enigma, especially at that age: they are all young and find in themselves their words, their gestures, their behaviour. With just a simple idea to start from, they have invented together during the rehearsals, under the gaze of Jeanne Candel, the stage director, the text and the story, the extremely simple environment, and assembled most varied styles of music. They form a collective called La Vie brève [The Brief Life]. But at no point do they wallow in morbidity. Quite the contrary. Obviously this brevity must be lived in energy, humour and love.


Colette Godard


If you want to see how young people grapple with theatre today and make it their story,
you have to go and see Robert Plankett by the collective La Vie brève.
