Even though my work is usually addressed to “adults”, it incorporates childhood objects or memories: fabrics designed with retro patterns that remind me of my first bedroom curtains, vintage objects made of orange plastic, relics of my baby infant years, princesses and cartoon heroines, memories of afternoons spent knitting with my grandmother…
I enjoy going back and forth between the different periods of my life as I enjoy playing with scales. How often did I dream, as a child, of being a character in miniature so that I could be part of the princess stories of my books, or fit in my “Playmobil” set?
I want to share this fantasy with the audience, this childhood dream of immersing oneself in an alternative world, a world shaped by fiction and potentiality, the wonderland we create as a child.

POPUP will stage – in a set that will be a wonder in its own right due to its three-dimensional engineering – every day “miraculous” phenomena by exploring their dream-like and epical qualities: the performer’s repeated dream of a ditch at the end of a garden that keeps being overflowed, a wild ride where windscreen wipers beat time, out of space phenomena that are unexpected and thus supernatural, two secretly in love neighbors pacing up and down a street.
The mentioned stories or phenomena will unfold and will interlace with background music that will involve singing, a piano and drums.

“It is night time; we can hear hooting owls and other night whispers. The sun rises, dogs are barking. The day has almost broken; we can make out a body lying next to the book that is closed for the moment. She sleeps in a large pristine nightgown under a pristine sheet. We can hear her breathe. The drawing of a landscape of some sort, spring like and bucolic or foggy and covered in snow, is projected. She gets up. She opens the book. We find ourselves in a street (a three-dimensional street is unfolded as the page is turned) and we can hear a faint street rumor.  The extract of a text is read; it’s about two persons that are looking for each other in a street. She turns another page and takes a seat; she is now on a train. The cartoon of the sight she can behold from the train is projected, with cables gently and elegantly passing by, as if they were performing a soft and sensual dance. Train noises. She gets off the train. She turns another page: we find ourselves in a geometrically shaped allotment garden, she begins to sing while a tune is played on the piano then, standing aside, she discreetly tells us about a dream. Then it’s night again, a starlit sky is projected, she turns a page and we find ourselves in space, or on a spaceship. Recorded on a multi track, the reading of a definition of an eclipse and of the 2005 partial eclipse is played on stage with a projected explanatory diagram.”
