"This is fascinating material - in its very obscurity, much lifeâ€¦"
Joyce Carol OatesMOLOLO is a series of open air performances including poetry, street theater, music and dance, which takes place on Molo in Sopot, Poland during summer season ("quick theater by the fountain").In 2016 shows under the title of "CrÃ¨me Noir" (French: black cream) were inspired by poems from the acclaimed American writer - Joyce Carol Oates.These performances were recorded for the movie, which is rather a new artistic expression than a documentary of events.CrÃ¨me Noir means the black cream.This noteworthy street triptych is a story about a sophisticated feminine world. The main character begins a multidimensional, metaphorical journey from maturity through childhood (even prenatal period!) and adolescence to the beginnings of her parentsâ€™ relationship.She tries to build the conscience of woman's nature. But during this trip she finds codes hard to decrypt, habits hard to break and wounds that heal over shallow and with suffering â€“ all inside of her. Deliberately or not, during the whole life sheâ€™s been putting on the black cream.
The searching for feminine power is nothing new in art, but this performance is so special, because it happens in the public place. The link with something primal in woman's womb, head and soul is weakened and trivialized by the contemporary civilization. So shall she find her self-esteem? Shall she scrub the black cream? Is her journey giving any hope? You've got to judge it on your own.Itâ€™s dark and raw. Sure not perfect.But itâ€™s a quaint cinematic experience.
