It seems that for every artist the creative process has its own rules: some inherit them, others invent them. In my case, the rules are so obvious that describing them is irrelevant, and would not interest a reader much anyway. How can you describe something as natural as breathing? What is substantial is in an underlying layer of things, and what is valuable in a work is half-buried. If you are looking for a theme, our plays are ideal: our creative process is endless, so it is up to the spectator to find a theme. It can become a pastime, trying to guess what is familiar or evocative. But we put all our energy into the story. Wim Wenders said that just linking two images was enough to make a story appear before our eyes. In 4, the story is concerned with an accumulation of little bells, some coyote heads, people moving around in clothes soaked in soap, turntables playing Beethoven’s 4th symphony, roosters strutting about, some nine year-old girls, a bit of literature, some worms caught by carnivorous plants, a samurai, a game of tennis played against a Courbet painting, cartoons, some thoughts about doggy style, football stadium floodlights and drones bringing dreams to the city in the form of bell music.
