Le Bel Indifferent Central Station Jean Cocteau

 


Mireille Capelle sings Poulenc, Noemi Schlosser performs Cocteau and Vitalski keeps quiet for an hour. Piano by David van Looveren in a coaching by Steven van Watermeulen. 2 women, 2 stories, a couple of feet away from the traintracks. In a hotel room a woman waits for any reaction from her lover. When this seems in vain, a long agony begins for this woman who feels desperately lonely ... as she is about to dumped. In her dramatically naive and unwillingly funny monologue she will scream and whisper, shout and laugh at a man who undisturbed will continue the lecture of his newspaper.

The other woman has already lost everything; she does not even have the possibility to confront her lover. She will sing and hum her song and slowly reveal her secrets to the audience. Will they take their suitcases and leave with the next train, or will they stay on the train tacks to wave all their chances goodbye?
