Parade created by Cocteau, Picasso, Satie and Massine for the Ballets Russes is both part of the repertoire and a piece of avant-garde theatre. This strange paradoxe prompted Andrew Graham to make History his own in a parade that is open to all kinds of interpretation and fields of expression. The eighteen performers, all from Marseille, enter the stage in all their joyous diversity: bodies, sounds, words and objects collide in a show orchestrated by the director Béatrice Pedraza, the choreographer Andrew Graham and the musician I Was Sleeping aka Martin Poncet. A historic ballet that serves as a springboard for the emergence of new forms and bodies collectively diving into creative action: amateurs and professionals, physically or mentally disabled or not, of all ages, some in wheelchairs… Following on from the show titled Sublime.é, this new step along the way explores the formidable capacity for transformation that we all possess.
