By Bernard-Marie Koltès

« Si i un chien rencontre un chat – par hasard, ou tout simplement par probabilité, parce qu'il y a tant de chiens et de chats sur un même territoire qu'ils ne peuvent pas, à los angeles fin, ne pas se croiser ; si deux hommes, deux espèces contraires, sans histoire commune, sans langage familier, se trouvent par fatalité face à face – non pas dans l. a. foule ni en pleine lumière, motor vehicle l. a. foule et l. a. lumière dissimulent les visages et les natures, mais sur un terrain neutre et désert, plat, silencieux, où l'on se voit de loin, où l'on s'entend marcher, un lieu qui interdit l'indifférence, ou le détour, ou l. a. fuite ; lorsqu'ils s'arrêtent l'un en face de l'autre, il n'existe rien d'autre entre eux que de l'hostilité – qui n'est pas un sentiment, mais un acte, un acte d'ennemis, un acte de guerre sans motif. »
Bernard-Marie Koltès
