L’envers by Company Ici’bas (Switzerland)
Choreographers: Julien Brun & Christine Daigle
Performers: Christine Daigle & Mathias Reymond
A glimpse of madness on the street corner. A circle of artificial turf where an acrobat and a dancer take the space by inviting the passerby to stop and take a deep breath of fresh air. A small cosy area that recalls nature’s serenity, in which we can freely loose track of the rest of the flock.
This meadow full of imagery then becomes a battlefield as well as a playground. A space-time between dog and wolf; between childhood and adulthood; between creative and destructive impulses; between dance and circus. A story to drink standing up while lying on the grass.
Excerpts from repertoire by T.H.E Dance Company & T.H.E Second Company
