Dedicated to you dear Julie.
"Stage gutted, technicians and actors move like cats in the dark as they get ready, slowly immersing themselves in the story. And it will be the story that little by little envelops the spectator, the story of a book given as a present, of a garden to build, of a fight that we all, sooner or later, will have to experience and face. Julie believed that everyone should try to build an inner garden to take shelter, to welcome those whom we love, those who got lost..., and those whom we would like to discover.
So now we are going to tell this story, with a bench and a garden. And there will be the fragility that each of us defends with shells and armours. The lightness of the memory of her laughter, her booklets full of notes and calculations, her advice and her dreams.
The mission of each life is to build an inner garden where we may take shelter, where we may welcome those we love, those who have lost their way, those whom we would like to meet in intimate and reserved surroundings. We have often told stories confined to closed spaces, imagined in the secret box we carry on our shoulders, where we create imaginary dreams and journeys.
This show was written for people who sow seeds which become trees, who design open spaces that invite reflection, that calm the soul.”
