Illusionist magician Kurt Demey and playfully unclassifiable choreographer Christian Ubl have found a wonderful
playground, spicy, crazy, unusual!
Their improbable duo opens the field for experimentation and the blossoming of a surreal, almost pataphysical garden …
A subtly participatory dance space conducive to all fantasies.
Different bodies, dissonant voices, distant approaches and paradoxical experiences: nothing predisposed to meeting them,
even less to the emergence of a duo where each moves away from their comfort zone to understand the art of the other and dance
together. Inspired by the pentagram, the scenography delimits a space of chance and luck where the two
acolytes, one Belgian the other Franco-Austrian, spare no efforts or their effects to invent a living space in
common. A welcoming place lined with pieces of neon green synthetic lawn conducive to discussing hormones,
playing dice and cards, tearing up photos, performing a few dance steps in underwear … Praised at the Avignon Festival
in its program “Long live the subject!” “, The play skillfully handles satyr, aloof humor and bad faith with a
unstoppable aplomb. Simply magical and earthy!
