Teaser "LE PETIT VIEUX"
"LE PETIT VIEUX"

 

The scenic creation and continuation of the short dance film NIVETTE, the company's previous project. We discover two characters playing with the apriori and prejudices of what old age represents today. 

This second part entitled LE PETIT VIEUX is a 60-minute stage duo. It features our two characters from different generations, who intertwine their stories to make visible the forgotten dialogue between youth and old age. Always with humour and poetry, renew the link between "young and old" and give each a place in the evolution of the other. We deepen the notion of transmission and intra-generational link. 

 

The play will begin with our little old man who will take us into his story, his experience, which will make him disappear under the face of the memory itself. This face is represented by a neutral mask designed during a workshop with Karine Galornie "plastic and puppeteer" from Juste Apres. 

The mask will be the common thread between the two dancers and will allow us to represent the impact of memory in the present moment for one and the desire for discovery for the other. The memory will give way to our little old man who will continue his history from war to celebration.....
