    [ENGLISH] The French theatre director and experimental film maker Jean-Frédéric Chevallier choose to compose his 2013 stage work with diversity. His team was composed of artists from Ecuador, Mexico, France as well as from the Bengal village of Morapaï and the Santal tribal Borotalpada, India. In some parts, Chevallier also introduced extracts from his forthcoming film. By combining elements from such different origins, Chevallier's theatre composition produced unexpected feelings and thoughts. The first presentation of the work took place during The Night of Theatre n°6, on 9th February 2013 at Trimukhi Cultural Centre, Borotalpada Village, West Bengal, India.
