NEW CREATION BY A BRILLIANT EMERGING QUÉBEC-BASED COMPANY.
On stage, a mysterious structure is suspended, like an island floating between Heaven and Earth. Performer Valérie Doucet, both immense and fragile, challenges it in a series of fascinating scenic landscapes in which is released the raw energy of a body pushed to its physical limits. How can we capture those precious moments of freedom and deprivation, where the defenseless body is pushed to the very edge? An ode to the power of life, its precariousness and outrageousness, performed by an exceptional circus artist.
Created during TOHU and Cirque Éloize residencies, notably, Une chambre de verre is in line with multidisciplinary creative company Nord Nord Est’s approach. Stage director Benoit Landry puts forward a climate drama, boldly combining the work of the body and the stage image. Surrounded by outstanding designers, including Alexis Bowles on lighting (Compagnia Finzi Pasca, Cirque Éloize), he wrote the music in collaboration with Colin Gagné (Réversible by Les 7 Doigts). Valérie Doucet, charismatic equilibrist, contortionist and acrobat, has worked with renowned companies (Circa, James Thierrée, Cirque Éloize). With the complicity of acrobat Julius Bitterling, she delivers a stunning performance, at the limits of circus, dance and physical theatre.
