Hybrid project, The Tiger’s Bride is a very free, poetic and bitty adaptation of the classical tale « The Beauty and the Beast ».
The choreography weaves its construction through the essential ambiguity of the body, between exteriority and interiority, between objectivity and subjectivity. In the classical tale, the Beauty must accept the Beast in order to become a person. Here, they have to mutate in order to get rid of the social constructions and transform their bodies into bodies with agency, carried out by the expressive power of movement.
During the performance, the energy of the physical contacts between the dancers induces the music and lights in real time, via a customized tactile costume. Tactile sensors swarm the body under the costumes so that a touch can become a sound, a storm, a voice, a light…animal freedom! »
