The wind's dreadful song

In his lyrical essay, The wind at Djemila, Albert Camus describes the experience of his visit to the ruins of an ancient city. A sensation is manifested in the authors body when in the arid lucidity of the landscape, the wind starts to blow. The intensity of  the wind and the uncanniness of the stony remnants, become the impetus of a contemplation about death.

A body on stage narrates the story. Camus’ argument is formulated and re-articulated through gesture, sound and language. The piece is an invitation to consider what would it mean to live today with the consciousness that this life is all that we have.
