Artistic Direction: Alan lake
Inspired by Géricault’s Raft of the Medusa, the performance immerses us in a complex “tableau vivant” in a post-apocalyptic universe where people struggle and come together. Cartloads of bodies intertwined in unlikely piles follow heaves where the floor slips away... We are gripped by a strong physicality embedded in a powerful imagery. The magnetic appeal that electrifies the stage produces a fascination that endures from start to finish through a series of startling images. Combining a powerful vocabulary and a perfect understanding of the ensembles, this piece, navigates between suggestion and reality without being able to determine its limits and contours.
