A voice echoing in the mountains. The melody of a prayer. Encyclopédie de la parole uses audio recordings to explore the richness of the spoken word. Since 2007 it has been digging into this extensive collection to create stage productions that address the relationship between language and body, sound and meaning. In Suite n°4, the presence of the ensemble Ictus, specialists in contemporary music, underscores the absence of narrators. Countless voices and languages present themselves as disembodied sound. Without any situation­specific context, the actual meaning of the words is of sec­ondary importance, their utterances materialised as sound. A translation of the audio recordings in writing becomes an actor in its own right, and as a typographical firework it opens up the raw material processed through music. Suite n°4 is a peculiar theatrical concert that puts the voices of the absent centre stage.
