Charlotte Rampling and Sonia Wieder-Atherton will meet the Romanian audience on Thursday, August 26, at 19:00, in the Great Hall of the “Radu Stanca” National Theater in Sibiu.
A French-UK production, “SHAKESPEARE – BACH / Le Main du Temps” brings on stage sonnets by William Shakespeare, musical suites by JS Bach, Charlotte Rampling – vocals and Sonia Wieder-Atherton – cello, “so that the light of a meeting shine in the rhythm of two languages, through the song of their voice”.
“Often, the memory returns, bringing along faces, names, fragments of stories and sounds. Shakespeare’s sonnets come out from this place, sometimes distant, sometimes with a penetrating present. As if they were addressed to these faces or as if they were themselves, the faces, which tell the sonnets. The cello itself, along with Bach’s suites, brings back fragments of memory while carving the time“, says Sonia Wieder-Atherton, about this show.
