After Suite n°1, 2 and 3, Encyclopédie de la parole returns with the final part of their highly acclaimed series. For Suite n°4, the collective returns to the source, the raw material that forms the basis of the previous iterations: the recorded voices of their rich sound collection. It is no longer actors who bring lost voices to life, but the speakers themselves who return from the past to speak with their own voices. Despite this physical absence, the characters are perceptibly present. Like ghosts, they return from a distant place and let their voices be heard. Get ready for an installation that makes use of all the theatre’s resources; a sonic and visual journey where the voices are accompanied by the music composition of Brussels ensemble Ictus. By focusing on the infinite versatility and musicality of human speech, Suite n°4 is a celebration of what is most vivid and most fleeting about humanity. It is a way of letting all those valuable but otherwise unheard voices resonate one last time.
