People What People

In this show Bruno Pradet invents a world without machines, without sets; there are no props, and the only visible movement is that of the dancers’ bodies.

These male and female bodies linked by an unwavering common pulse, who form a compact group and whose internal geography is constantly dissolving, only to reform a moment later. One image follows another, before being itself cancelled out in a kaleidoscopic process conjuring up a world turned upside-down by the tremors of hearts at the end of their tether, a world going round in circles; just like these brilliant lights, projected on to the stage; dragging the chorus into a giddy whirlwind, symbol of a planetary system which has lost its mind.

In this singular universe, it’s the bodies which vibrate; inventing their own language to relate to each other, to create ritual dances, uncertain whether their intention is to make us laugh, or to make us cry. People what people? is constructed like a musical score; with the accent on ‘resonance’ rather than on ‘reason’.

Backed by a captivating electro-acoustic score, and punctuated by invigorating fanfares reminiscent of country fairs as much as of military bands; the dance of this small community delivers, in its pin-point precision, a powerful and searing message, difficult to put into words.

People what people? is made by people like us.
All kinds of people, doing what we do every day; laughing, loving, confronting, reconciling. Living.
