As they arrive at mid-term in their lives… men and women are drawn to the (their) depths. They loose foot, cannot find their landmarks, and are transformed by the pain inflicted on their bodies. Inspired by illustrations of Hell by Gustave Doré in Dante’s Divine Comedy, Sous la nuit solitaire (Under the solitary night) shows us our modern hells, our quirks, our flaws, our wounds, our depressions, our falls. Violence rubs shoulders with hope – the hope of getting back on our feet, always. Solitude crosses great numbers, the shapeless mass, for in the depths there is no more hierarchy, only one people: the one who moves, obscure, in the solitary night.
Ten performers, actors and dancers, give form to this great project that unites two companies directed by artists that have developed, in the course of their collaborations, a strong complicity: Estelle Clareton (Créations Estelle Clareton) and Olivier Kemeid (Trois Tristes Tigres). By intertwining theatre and dance in an organic whole, these two creators have developed a singular stage language, a ‘’talking body ‘’ aesthetic where the poetry of words merges with the poetry of the body, giving birth to a suite of striking tableaus.
