Cie d’Autres Cordes

Cast away on the shores of an unknown world, infused with spooky spaces filled with spirits and people of unusual, primitive, shamanic traits, or, on the opposite end, hyper-evolved ones. In front of our eyes comes to life an organic universe, devoid of temporal beacons, where different fragments of past and future civilizations are interacting. A polymorphic spectacle, an electronic opera, a visual theater, lots of choreographic and operative objects, relying on a non-conventional storyline, blending into a suite of live tableaux. “Forêt” dwelves into multiple stories of adventurers or ethnology discoverers, such as “Shipwrecked”, “Don’t Sleep, There Are Snakes” by Daniel Everett, or even “Sad Tropics” by Claude Lévi-Strauss, whose epigraph (short quotation at the beginning of a book) was Lucrèce’s “Not more than you, these generations have not stopped extinguishing themselves, and will continue to extinguish themselves” incarnates partly the dramaturgical bases of the spectacle. “Forêt” doesn’t answer any questions, but invites you to a poetic and sensoriel experience, and maybe during a lull, give us the opportunity to investigate the evolution of the interaction between nature and culture.
