François Sarhan, composer in residence at the National Theatre in Orleans between 2009 and 2012 is simultaneously a cellist, composer, author, encyclopaedist, and a creator of stop motion animation and film. Lachez Tout is a concert and silent film with live music, actors and two foley (film sound-effect) artists, with François Sarhan himself performing on stage. Circassian actor Claudio Stellato plays Bobok, the central character of the film, and the Foley Artists create the sounds of the doors slamming, the footsteps and the passing trucks. Lachez Tout is a total experience halfway between a detective story and a philosophical tragicomedy.
This production was originally premiered at the Tramway in Glasgow, and subsequently performed at Summerhall in Edinburgh and at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival 2013.
