Forests are places of continuous effort and struggles. You are obliged to cut down in order to plant; run and stroll; find yourself or lose yourself. In short, dare to face paradoxes, even the absurd, like the sign of the human “at work” in all of this green permanence. Claude Boudeau reinterprets, in his own manner as a performing artist, Camus’s Myth of Sisyphus, which views our constantly renewed efforts not as the mark of damnation, but rather as a sign of our grandeur. Stubbornly, we brave the sun and the ticks (perhaps common ethics too sometimes), the rain and the mosquitoes, in order to exist here, to find ourselves in this sylvan magic outside of all the walls. In short, to look for the discomfort of liberty. No matter, the exhausted body of the young creator says to us, if they make fun of his frailty and his undertaking which is doomed from the start. In this place it’s not so much about winning as it is about sharing.
