Moi in French
Conception and choreography: Geisha Fontaine and Pierre Cottreau.
Dancers: Alexandre Da Silva, Sylvain Dufour, Geisha Fontaine, Sylvain Riéjou (apprenticeship).
Me is a story of suitcases, a portable dance that comes, goes and goes. Combining burlesque and poetry, this trio questions the place of the territory by playing on the relationship of the container to the content.
Me refers to figures of passage crossed in the streets as well as to Marcel Duchamp and his museum suitcase. Three “selves” travel, meet and respond to each other, in complicity with Mr. Teste, an astonishing character of Valéry who declares “It is what I bring unknown to myself that makes me me”.
Me has fun with the question of the choreographic object by shifting it. This plastic proposal plays with the figure of the artist.
It’s also a way of moving. In this dance, the performers go out of their way for their audience by giving the spotlight to suitcases.
Beware of abandoned packages…
