Choreograph for young audience freely inspired by the musical universe of Boby Lapointe

** Duet - from 6 years – 50mn **

 

A genial hommage to the very special world of Boby Lapointe.

Boby Lapointe, a genius of word entanglement, loves mixing meanings, and laughs at everything and everyone. In his songs each couplet can reveal the absurd, the lyrics dance, intersect, and reflect each other; they twist and turn, often revealing the tenderness hidden at the heart of things. Whether indulging in a good laugh or making clumsy blunders; whether in mad dances or in crazy discussions; the two dancers of Boby Boy call to each other, confront each other, or brush against each other in this performance where visual images and the two dancers' bodies join in a happy mix with Boby Lapointe's songs and texts.

 

« Bruno Pradet catches the clever word-play, the amusing references of Boby Lapointe's songs, and juggles with them in his own way ; with lightness of touch and like a clown. In this age where we break our backs on our first reading experiences, to hear words going head over heels, with such gentle madness, in a theatre, produces a great jubilation »
