(Running with eyes closed along the edge of a cliff)
In a ten-minute solo intended not for the stage, but for theatre halls and public places, Éléonore Valère-Lachky wants to sound the alarm about the impact of our behaviour on the environment. Ground dance, crawling, and then verticality regained as symbols of life drive, action and resistance. They all express committed support for the scientific word, the one that, in the heart of the City, tries to denounce, or even thwart, the advertising discourse, which is invasive, alienating or downright deceitful. An artistic gesture in a state of emergency, like an alert on the brink of collapse.
The performance takes place within the framework of the themed evenings Politics of Worst and Hope. Les Brigittines will be presenting four original and incisive performances around highly topical themes of today.
- Pleasant Island from Silke Huysmans & Hannes Dereere
- Hidden Paradise from Alix Dufresne + Marc Béland
- Ré-ouvrir les horizons, Quitter les paradis fiscaux from the collective Désorceler la finance
