The Passage (La traversée)
Text by Josep Maria Miró
Translated by Laurent Gallardo
Directed by Laurent Vacher
With Éric Berger, Didier Manuel, Charlie Nelson and Julie Pilod
A young girl dies in the arms of Sister Cecília, who finds her among some brambles after being brutally assaulted. This event will set of all the nun’s alarms regarding the functioning of the humanitarian project in the settlement where she is working, in an area devastated by violence and the numerous needs for aid to children and refugees. The episode will be the starting point of an intense emotional journey in relation to her ethical principles and her faith.
The Passage is the journey that takes Sister Cecília from the point of humanitarian conflict to cross the frontier with the first world, the origin of aid and, possibly, the source of the problems.
This play received the Frederic Roda Prize in 2015.
