A performance  presented within the context of the European Cultural Season in France (1st of July-31st of December 2008)

Expect artistic sparks to fly, as two of the strongest figures of the contemporary choreography scene –France's Mathilde Monnier and Spain's La Ribot – team up for Gustavia, their portrait of an ever-elusive woman. This enthralling face à face, offers us a bitingly ironic view of our world, thanks to a refreshing dash of both insolence and humor.

Territoires

Buy tickets

In Territoires, Mathilde Monnier will be taking over the galleries of the Centre Pompidou during the course of a weekend in order to bring us a piece that deals with memory and circulation, "a collection of gestures from her work over the past thirty years". In doing so, the choreographer sets up the possibility of playing out memory in the present, from now onwards, or by means of anticipation.

In Still Not Still, choreographer Ligia Lewis pursues her exploration into the silences and shadows of history. In this piece, the performers play out a score over and over again, the burlesque dimension of which makes it all the more tragic.

Over its forty years of existence, with Tim Etchells at the helm, the company has never stopped reinventing itself. And it continues to do so. Amidst an oscillating form of virtual reality, six performers find themselves deprived of their voices and their entire beings. The whole thing goes beyond all understanding... Welcome to this new world.

Par les villages

Theatre
Buy tickets

Sébastien Kheroufi discovered Peter Handke's Par les villages at the onset of his artistic career. It evokes a writer's return to his native village. Amidst the twilight setting in which one universe declines in favour of another, the voices of the “offended and humiliated” break their silence.
