A performance composed by Pierre Bal-Blanc
An adaptation from Sauve qui peut (la vie) by Jean Luc Godard, 1980.
Duration: 84 minutes
"Sauve qui peut" (every man for himself) can be understood as a performative linguistic expression that calls for an action, a movement. It is an exclamation, an order inviting people to run away as best they can. It's a general and disorganized flight. (…) This title is also intended for the invited audience to experience the 84-minute duration of the original film. "Sauve qui peut" is offered to everyone as the voice towards a concrete or mental exit from the role of spectator, a call to act rather than to suffer. — Pierre Bal-Blanc
