"Le Marin Perdu" is a dance and physical theater performance by Natalia Vallebona and Faustino Blanchut.
The work is inspired by "The Lost Mariner", a chapter in the book "The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat" by Oliver Sacks.
In this chapter, the patient is stuck in the present, in conflict with his memory, a frozen past that doesn't change with time, and a future that cannot exist. The performance stages the life of a broken man, lost between the splinters of his memory.
This introspection is expressed by means of an incongruous and fragmented body language, that enables the character to express his own diagnosis.
"Moi, j’ai perdu ma mé … Moi" (Me, I lost my … me).
