Tell me, what you dance?

2015 creation

Choregraphic part for 3 dancers
Duration: 45 minutes (no intermission)

Accessible from 5 years old

In the tales, the number three is often present concerning ordeals, characters or objects. In this show, it is there but differently. Three dancers for three tales : “The Little Match Girl”, “Little Red Riding Hood” and “The Ugly Duck”.

One of them travels more than the others. In this way, when the little merchant burns a match to warm herself in her sad nook, her imagination empowers her to enter and to interfere with the characters from the other tales. This imaginary world for young and old is highlighted with wonderful video images whose naive drawings “in the style of old” give an inventive and poetic touch in this world of hip-hop.

Dream and poetry gave way to a burlesque universe that takes the spectator of all ages in a variety of sensations and emotions. This symbolic and dreamlike travel to childhood that questions the quest for the “inner transformation”.
