A set of rhythmic and timed circus feats. Through juggling, two characters try to dilate, but also stop or accelerate, time. At the same time, they offer us historical anecdotes. This show questions the use of time: why do a lot of things if you can just as well do nothing ? How long can we stay focused on the same situation ? What is a reasonable, normal, or suitable duration ?
Ariane presents us an excerpt from Dis.cover, a show that questions the construction of the female body and the stereotypes and archetypes attached to it.
The artist experiments with concealment and exposure: She both hides and reveals parts of the body, she moves and handles objects. The audience discovers a multidimensional person, full of conflicts and paradoxes – a female body full of strange abilities, bizarre flaws, and whimsical movements. Dis.cover is a juggling show that questions the gaze and perception of the audience. A small, modest form, calm, political, and a bit funny.
Back home, a lonely man whose only attachment to the world is his newspapers finds his apartment ransacked. In his quest to find the reason behind this chaos, the elements gradually turn against him.
Is someone pulling a nasty prank on him or is just he going crazy?
Félix Didou wrote this act like a short horror story. Since he corrupts the audience’s perception thanks to magic, it becomes difficult to distinguish reality from hallucination.
L’Extra Quotidien is a preparatory act for the upcoming performance Un jour de Neige which will be released in October 2022.
