The actors of l'Atelier de Mars and the dancers of l'Autre Maison create an anthology of beauty through a collection of lively scenes by reappropriating bits of contemporary texts and choreographies. These disabled and non-disabled artists question the representations of bodies in all their diversity and singularity.
There is only one leitmotiv: to make oneself beautiful, to live beautiful and to give beauty. They will take the time to leave images, traces, sensations and voices, on an empty stage, lit by flash, accompanied by microphones and live music. In order to capture as closely as possible the sounds, the breaths, the bodies, the words said and experienced in a different way. They upset, disturb, reanimate and mobilise something in each person in a suspended time, questioning our state between animality and humanity. They create a moment of sublimation as if to take off from our states of survival, hunger, thirst, care, quasi-medical functioning, so that each one can set off on the adventure of creation, of imagination, and perhaps then, this adventure of evolution, of surpassing oneself to invent sublime ways of being together.
We no longer talk about disability and inclusion. We are talking about how to make 'us'!
To allow oneself
To see beyond our field of vision, and maybe,
Of oneself, of us.
