PETTIT_ROCHET “La Nature du Rire”
LA NATURE DU RIRE is a research project on the act of laughter. On stage, 5 performers will compose its great orchestra. Will you be able to recognize its echoes, its vibrant and polyphonic scores? Laughter as substance and movement will measure the contagiousness and the ambient generosity, will sculpt bodies and faces, will induce energies and flows, will leave in its passage sounds and traces. In this live laboratory with the spectators, the laughter will be a hypothesis subjected to infinity. A raw material, crossed by the bodies, between well-oiled mechanics and/or fine spontaneity.
Eduard Hue, Beaver Dam Company “Forward (A new start)”
The piece embodies the perpetual struggle of the being in search of evolution and change. Translated through the body, the emotions that overwhelm the performers are provoked by the obsessive desire to move forward. In an unstable and deconstructed atmosphere, the tug of war of the performer takes place. It is a relentlessness, for a simple step forward.
