Gimme Shelter - Compagnie Yokaï

In a creepy abandoned amu- sement park, a man is wandering among weird creatures, contaminated by an ecologi- cal disater; meanwhile, inside an electricity box, a recluse is trying to survive what is lur- king out there.

Horizons is a musical and visual journey. This story, set on an extraordinary Danish Island in the North Sea, is told via four electro-accoustic compositions and live mapping. Life there follows the waves: in the past they left various treasures on the shores, now they bring hordes of languid tourists.

On était une fois - 36 du mois

On était une fois - 36 du mois

There is no translation available.Autour d’une scène circulaire, une vingtaine de peluches assises sur un quart du gradin attendent un spectacle de "On" qui va (peut-être) commencer. Les trois-quarts restants du gradin accueillent le public "réel". Les voix des peluches vont exprimer tout haut ce qu’un public pense habituellement tout bas. Dans ce jeu de miroir prêtant à la réflexion et à l’auto-dérision, les spectateurs de chiffon, face à nous, font face au public et le questionnent sur sa posture.…
Robot Dreams - Meinhardt & Krauss

Robot Dreams - Meinhardt & Krauss

A dancer meets robots, animated body parts and the artificial intelligence ToMoMi. Neither are human or animal, nor are they pure objects. They are alive, infused with magic. The self-made sentient creatures become mirrors of ourselves, reflecting our loss of humanity, while performers slowly turn into cyborgs.
R.O.O.M.

R.O.O.M. - Meinhardt & Krauss

A young woman stands in a room she has never seen before. She sits at HER table, on HER chair, not in her room. Little does she know that she has already been here, in this mysterious room without view or exit, this room she tries to define but which seems alive. Evidently, something is happening in this room. Maybe something grave.
