“Art of Living” is a radical stage attempt to achieve what seems to be impossible: to transpose George Perec’s legendary novel Life A User’s Manual into a theatre event.

In this five-hour performance we balance between the need to write on the white sheet of paper, to recite certain words on stage, and to overcome the resistance and crisis that comes with this act of telling your own biography and history. In this particular case the very act of writing, set in motion by the author and dictated by the need to face up to your own life, tells a tale of cultural and identity exclusion.

In his metaphorical stories, Georges Perec has camouflaged a compelling image of the human being, obsessively searching for a place to call their own and yearning to salvage their biography.
