Le Bal des Intouchables

création 2012 | Unavailable
Under the tent, the show starts with an odd stage entry which forebodes the notion of untouchable.
Throughout the show, it is a symphony of possibilities that the artists show, as they escape what seems impossible in principle. At the beginning, the group is like a procession, then, gradually, they all play their part, free themselves from the collective, slip away high up, venture to be free and to fall, in order to go back to people with new movements to offer.The singular destiny of Antoine Rigot is at the heart of the piece only this time with a new aim, boosted by this immersion in an artistic team offering solos, duets, trios and reunions expressing vitality, malice, cruelty, dreams, failures, insolence, risk, virtuosity, generosity, wisdom…Often Burlesque, the Bal des intouchables tells us of eight people, young and old, slight and handicapped, agile and fragile. Les Colporteurs have successfully combined movement and emotion, brought forth a mastery of the art and the transmission of experience.
The musicians play a full part in the drama, first as part of the scene and then accompanying around the edges. Their role contributes to ensuring that a solid thread stretches through the entire performance. This production is the result of a work focussing on the discovery of the self and of others and the attempt to accept the differences which govern us, distance us and bring us closer together. Freeing itself of conventional images, the show praises the chosen skill and the poetry of slow motion.

Excerpts from a text by Claudine Dussollier 13 September 2012
"Le Bal des intouchables is a a series of acts for thirteen acrobats and musicians, technically splendid, unusual and with fierce intensity. With a permanent gravity, a deep harmony as a back-drop."
