"It is a real challenge to reconstruct the paths of sensitivity in order to start to learn to see and hear again". Baptiste Morizot
What is this lack of sensitivity we show to the other forms of life that surround us?
Humans are destroying ecosystems we know nothing about that, however, communicate with each other in extraordinary ways.
The aim of this piece is to develop and share ecological and social questions that particularly concern our younger generation, for it is they who will create the society of tomorrow.
Michèle Noiret wishes to share the wonder and fascination one can feel when observing the living world, and the sadness and anger felt at its gradual disappearance.
The choreography weaves its way through this anger just as much as it is inspired by the fantastic world of insects, in which the complexity of the rhythms, attitudes and the decomposition of the movements seem strange to us.
Such phenomena as cocoons, metamorphosis, mating and the capture of prey are so many variations that impregnate the movements, the images, the stage design and orient the piece.
Dance-cinema, the codes of which the choreographer likes reinventing in each of her pieces, takes on its full meaning here. This multidimensional writing blurs perceptions by mixing live footage of the performers on stage with pre-recorded images that introduce the outside world onto the stage.
A fascinating living world is constructed, sometimes frightening, guiding us where the unreal rubs shoulders with the real and the fabulous brushes against monstrous beauties.
