Technically light, this version enables a new encounter with dance for it adapts to any invested place and highlights it while inventing with it a true intimate relation.
For this latest creation, accessible from 5 years old, the choreographer Séverine Bidaud revisits the universe of tales.
Four dancers for three tales :”The Little Match Girl”, “Little Red Riding Hood” and “The Ugly Duckling”.
One of the characters will travel more than the others do. In this way, as soon as the little merchant burns a match to warm herself in her sad nook, her imagination will enable her to enter and to interfere with the characters from the two other tales. The result is an immersion in a fantasy world, for little and grown-up kids, in a hip-hop spirit.
Dream and poetry give way to a burlesque universe where the sensitive and the absurd coexist. A symbolic and dreamlike journey to childhood that questions the quest of « inner transformation».
