DIPTYQUE: Matamatá & La vie n’est pas utile

This Diptych is the production of two choreographic works that complement and complexify each other, like two photographic images placed side by side. Diptych is a project at the crossroads of theatre, dance, literature and visual arts, consisting of a piece for three performers (“Matamatá”) and a solo conference ("Life is not useful or It is what it is). It is the deployment of my infinite search towards and around the marvellous.
Faced with the zeitgeist of our time, the climate catastrophe, the imminent death of the largest tropical forest on the planet and other challenges, as a choreographic artist I ask myself: Will we be able to reforest/replant, to become a forest with our bodies and our cities, how are we going to find joy and pleasure and not fall into melancholic and eco-climatic anguish? How can we make a dance to delay the end of a world?
We start from bodily fabulations to perhaps make the audience’s thoughts dance.
