On the beach - 2009

A beach and its cabins…
On the sand, some deserted transats and in the background echoes of an ending party.

The last tipsy guests are hanging around in front of the sea. Groogy early morning for these select and disabused characters.
At the first rays of sunshine, facing the sea and the other, they are overwhelmed with cruaulty. The morning dispels alcohol hazes and sand grains become thousands touches of madness. Children games become adults games, forbidden games.

This wordless proposition is based on a realistic interpretation mixing with contemporary danced moments full of gravity, humour and cynism.

“On the beach” evocates indifference and individualism of the gilded youth through six characters – women and men – who look at each others, flaunt and expose themselves, seduce, repel and tear each other apart.

Artistic team:

Julie Alamelle, Suzel Barbaroux, Cyril Limousin, Sarah Moha, Laura Petrosino

« Equiped with a walkman which broadcast a sound creation, the spectator dawdles and lets himself go to the impression and the show of the moment... Feeling free and going to meet unexpected characters. »
