The Narrator

Highly physical, vocal and visual solo performance. Personal confession of a dancer, performer and singer Cécile da Costa is reflected in “The Patience Stone”, novel written by the French- Afghan author Atiq Rahimi, where a woman decides to tell "her story", only when her husband falls into coma. Cécile's life story is not the same with the story of that woman, but both have the same desire: to open up and tell their touching story.
