Certains murs sont infranchissables

« Comme tous les jours ou presque, la jeune femme est venue à la rencontre de la
dame âgée. Comme tous les jours sans doute, ainsi qu’elle tente de le faire chaque
fois, la jeune femme va vouloir que la dame âgée lui raconte l’histoire de Savannah
Bay, l’histoire d’un amour tragique et démesuré. » (source:

« Savannah Bay ou comment décrocher d’une pièce en 15 minutes » aurait dû être le
titre complet de cette œuvre de Marguerite Duras, mise en scène par Philippe Sireuil.
Les comédiennes déblatèrent leur texte avec une telle monotonie qu’elles m’ont
ramené sur les bancs de l’école secondaire, face à ma prof de physique. Elle aussi se
devait d’expliquer des choses compliquées et qui paraissent même insensées. Et elle
aussi avait cette voix qui vous endort au bout de quelques minutes. Mais attention, je
ne remets pas ici en cause le talent des comédiennes, pas plus que celui de cette
enseignante. Elle ont une puissance de jeu tout à fait palpable. D’ailleurs, comme le
dit l’expression, elles tiennent la baraque pendant plus d’une heure à deux! Mais la
manière robotique de parler de l’une et la petite voix fluette de l’autre gavent
rapidement. Elles n’arrivent à réellement captiver qu’à un seul moment: quand la
dame âgée vient au devant de la scène s’adresser au public. On aurait envie de dire
quand elle vient enfin s’adresser au public. Pendant une bonne partie de la
représentation, les spectateurs sont un peu délaissés, on ne vient pas les chercher pour
les embarquer dans cette histoire. Une distance s’installe et grandit au fil des minutes.

Une grande question s’impose dès l’ouverture des rideaux: pourquoi avoir choisi de
laisser autant de vide sur cette scène? Je m’explique. L’espace de jeu est pleinement
ouvert et le décor est ramené à son strict minimum: un fauteuil en osier et une petite
boite à musique. Une théorie m’est alors apparue, bien qu’elle peut autant relever de
coïncidences que d’une mise en scène parfaite (sur ce plan-là). Prenons d’abord en
compte la place de ces deux objets cités plus haut. La boite à musique à l’avant de la
scène, le fauteuil à bascule dans le fond, sur une diagonale. Sur certains tableaux, la
jeune femme joue auprès du petit coffre musical tandis que la vieille dame est assise
sur son siège en osier. Un contraste entre la jeunesse qui renferme de tels trésors qu’il
en échappe une douce musique qui vous donne envie de danser de bonheur; et la
vieillesse qu’on met à l’arrière-plan (un débat d’actualité plus que jamais), qu’on
balance comme on peut jusqu’au moment fatidique. Les rôles de chacune abondent
aussi dans ce sens et renforcent cette barrière posée entre les deux catégories d‘âge. La
petite fille avide de se gaver de souvenirs avant même d’avoir vécu, la grand-mère qui
n’a plus envie de se rappeler des moments d’un passé trop lointain et qu’elle ne
reverra plus jamais.

Au final, si le texte nous passe un peu outre, certaines scènes soulèvent des questions,
amènent des prises de conscience. « Savannah Bay » arrive finalement, à sa manière, à
nous faire vivre avec lui.
