Nos amours bêtes

Dance Young Audiences

Handsome, beautiful and dumb, five dancers and actors stage a joyous game. Their goal is to tell you a story all the way to the end, step by step. Whoever wins a stage may recite part of the story ; if he or she wins the game the trophy is an animal skin. They have rules to respect, and sometimes they need the audience's help.

Mixing contemporary dance and a text by Fabrice Melquiot, this piece is based on a dialogue between the stage and the public. Imagine the sound that dance makes when it speaks, listen to the music from your childhood, we are all here to laugh, have fun, and think a little.

Beyond the dialogue between dance and theater, Nos amour bêtes is led by a conciliatory energy : that of the game, a child's game, a child's game played by adults, a game that sets the rules to be respected and the challenges to be addressed, a game that facilitates exchanges but also knocks bodies down, sometimes pushes you to fight, sometimes brings you together.
