Critics’ Week / World premiere

Hors les murs

David Lambert

Paulo, a young pianist, meets Ilir, a double-bass player originally from Albania. It’s love at first sight. Confronted by Anka, Paulo finds himself out on the street. Despite Ilir’s misgivings, Paulo moves in with him. One day, when Paulo promises that he will love Ilir for the rest of his life, Ilir leaves the city and doesn’t return. A few days later, Paulo finds out that Ilir is in jail, and the two lovers embark on an heart-breaking relationship.
