  Abstract:  The performance Une année sans une autre (A year without another one) acted by Virginie Balabaud addresses the intimate connection between History, Object and Absence. The reading of a World War II psychiatric patient’s draft letters, a combination of silence and words, leads the artist to question the voice adjustability. From a neutral angle, Virginie Balabaud explores the relation between diction and dramaturgy: Does neutrality and minimalism reinforce the dramatic intensity? Virginie Balabaud conceptualizes the joint of vocal harmonies as time goes on. In this project, the tone is a vehicle of temporality, implying the perception of past, present and future. The artist intends to report obstacles lining her artistic path through a sophisticated scenery and using her voice as a tool.

Keywords: voice, silence, reading, performance, psychiatric hospital’s archives, minimalism, time, absence
