FIRE OR EMOTIONS is a monologue about travelling through time. The imaginative idea of "time travel" is used as a stepping stone in the performance to address any other subject to mix it in a discourse that might as well be endless. It treats the irrational forces of science, the mystical mathematics of Pythagoras, the mistakes of Einstein and the possibilities of science fiction. Pamina de Coulon questions the stories of our reality, chronology and causality, abstraction and empowerment. She explores the moral and political implications that we inevitably face if the impossible becomes possible.
Pamina The Coulon toys in FIRE OR EMOTIONS with the constant tension between the massive and constant movement of cosmos and time, and the very temporary interpretation of reality according to our emotions. Although in the end it eventually comes down to her stubborn will to understand the world and to explain the unknown.
This monologue is available in French and English.
