Monnaie de singe

Creation 2011

Solo

 Monnaie de singe ("Phony money") proposes some ideas for a meditation, not really economical, nor even ecumenical, but significant on the madness that overtakes humankind when hearing the sweet rattle of coins invading their brains, and transforming the lamentations of the world into white noise.

 The performance is based on an original text by Patrick Goujon. It combines the spoken word, dance, and visual images in an effort to express the confinement into which greed can plunge us.

 

Pousse-toi !

Creation 2008

Duo

Teaser "Pousse-toi !"

Two characters fired by the same ambition to win, a desperate rivalry hidden under the cover of artificial politeness....the stage is set for this fast-moving duo where the energy of the two participants pushes them to crazy competitions, orchestrated by a merciless Master of Ceremonies.

 

(H.B.D.P.)²

Creation 2007
Co-production with "association ça - Hervé Diasnas"
45'

Teaser (H.B.D.P.)²

Behind closed doors, two “soldiers of a paper army” are overwhelmed by sheets after sheets of   paper spewed out by a machine whose incongruous logic escapes us. Papers bearing orders, the order of things, the things of life. A “face to face” in a world of gestures, but where occasional  words come along to remind us that they do in fact have some meaning. In this duo; at once absurd and joyous, visual theatre and a theatre of objects are counter-balanced by a dance of great power.

 

Reproduction interdite

Pour 5 performers and a puppet

Creation 2005
70'

Five characters in the excitement of a happy event where everyone brings his own fantasies.«Reproduction interdite» evoke in a shortened way the terrible and unfinished story of the transmission of life.Some metaphors of this adventure aretold us by curious creatures which we call men.In their side, a silent puppet seems to tell us that the frenzy of these apprentices loosers has nothing tragic

 

Show room

For 2 performers, a viola de gamba, some graphics dans audience participation

Creation 2004
55'

Teaser "Show room"

Show Room is a show which goes round in circles, when two artists square up to their audience.

Back and forth between reality and fiction, the spectators follow a series of variations, some scholarly, some comical, some ironic, burlesque or poetical; all dissecting the long and delicate journey of the creative process.

This eclectic production shamelessly mixes dance, music, theatre of the absurd, and visual projections, all carried along by a crazy duo, whose comments on the throes and hardships of the creative process are often deeper than they appear on the surface.

 

PaRoLes De Muet

For 3 performers, some graphics and materials...

Creation 2004
45'

Teaser "PaRoLes De MueT"

In Paroles de muet , three performers try , each in their own way, to speak, to express themselves, without truly succeeding, leaving wide open the spaces that separate them one from the other. So they invent poetic languages . They speak in images, they use different materials and music as extensions of themselves.

 Transparent or opaque, these blend with, and sometimes completely merge with the performers.

 Image and materials become partners in the scenic process, as indeed they are part and parcel of our day-to-day lives.

 

Décidément

For 3 dancers and 1 musician

Creation 2003
50'

Teaser "Décidément"

Décidemment  takes a caustic look at humanity in an outrageous setting, where the virtual and the real are intertwined; where the wealth of images leads to their becoming subliminal, where the hurly-burly is so intense that no melody can be perceived, and where ' I buy, therefore I exist ' seems to assert itself as the heroic ' Credo ' of a new race. Such an environment must surely affect the relationships that men and women form between themselves.

 
Chaos intime.jpg

Chaos intime

For 2 dancers - when boy meets girl

Creation 2002
30'

Teaser "Chaos intime"

Fragments from the everyday life of a man and woman, searching to understand how they came to be where they are. A route marked by intimate contours, by moments of chaos, by barely visible scars and covered by the dust shaken down by the years. An everlasting theme explored by this short and visually strong production, a succession of tableaux , non-complacent and full of derision.

 

Doré D'eau

Aquatic choreography in urban spaces

For 4 dancers, 1 musician and a fountain

Creation 2007
15'

Golden bodies, wet bodies, collapsed bodies, glowing bodies, trembling bodies...
Facing an impetuous, impertinent and sometimes timid water.
The meeting occurs without knowing who, human or water, really leads the dance.
Moving bodies and water movements come together in the magic of the ephemeral ; and when everything is calm, one can hear the viola da gamba’s song.

 

Confessions

a solo that hits the spot

Creation 2001
15'

In this short performance, the audience find themselves in the position of witnesses to a number of ' confessions ' delivered with a degree of savagery, and much sincerity . The performer's intentions, whether they be choreographic or theatrical, reinforce the intimate feel of the stage  installation.
