Au Coeur - Dance and Creation
On at 15h30

Thierry Thieû Niang questions the ambivalence of the act of a child falling and the serious reaction of an adult to this fall – careful; you’re going to fall!”

Beyond that, comes the point of view of the children themselves for « a child plays to fall down. He doesn’t move. He then gets up and starts again. He says that he was pretending. He says that he is playing dead! What is he playing at? And what about us, what do we find in this immobility, in this temporal stillness? »

To know more about this question, Thierry Thieû Niang chooses to work with children and adolescents and recruit, in each city which welcomes him, fourteen young amateurs. These young people have to, firstly, go on stage and fall: will someone help him up ?, will he try to get up gracefully ?, or simply pretend….

Finally the professionals, all an accomplice, create the setting to welcome the young performers: the writer Linda Lê proposes a text which explores the world of exiled childhood; the singer Camille, combines singing a Capella and the viola de Gamba with Robin Pharo. The youngsters on stage discover what connects them to their identity, child gestures, the art of childhood, a future to design together.

Additional performances will be held on 25th and 27th November 2016 at eTheater Paris-Villette in Paris La Villette park.
