FACE-À-FACE by Jérémie Niel
FINALLY ! Critically acclaimed in 2021 in front of an ultra-small audience, here’s your chance to catch Face-à-face !
Face-à-face is a concerto for four hands, a rambling about the quest for beauty and the absolute, about the mysteries of stage creation shared by dance and theatre. Jérémie Niel, Catherine Gaudet, Louise Bédard, Félix Antoine Boutin, mirror each other; two choreographers and two directors who have mastered the art of probing the strings and fissures of each of their disciplines. A few steps on the stage, a choreography of words, sounds and breaths. From language to abstraction, the two performers, Louise Bédard and Félix-Antoine Boutin, inhabit the space, contaminate each other, seek each other out with irony, and find a direction all at once. The magic and fragility of each are all the more revealed when we are propelled, jostled into the other’s posture and world. And yet not that far away.
