The word is old, and it is a pity: it would be useful; because assembly and assembled mean things or persons. We have no word to express the action to assemble; Malherbe said:
It is in the assemblement of these celestial couples,
That if our past troubles left some rests,
They go of the whole to finish."*
Our duet answers the rules of the game put by Lieux Publics called Marché commun, to create a short shape for a space of the most complex: the market, the place of the business, the exchange…
We invest the time of the deinstallation, not exactly the end of the market but the moment when the square empties, where the stakes in the sale calm down, where the gleaners arrive, the moment of the rests. Two characters will settle down in this chaotic moment, between two, to play in turn the meeting and the exchange.
Clothes, objects, things, heaps, here…
To find a common route…
I do not know.
