BOTTOM [création 2017]

Friday 13 May 2016


A forgotten fellow wanders in, wearing his threadbare clothes as awkwardly as his memories of better times. At times he is absent, then suddenly dazzling; the world has abandonned him but left him unburdened. This social outcast is both poignant and clearly incompetent. He will dress up as a woman, then an animal or mythological being. These parts articulate what escapes him.

This seemingly transparent clown needs to pass through transformations to reach his inner complexity. At the center, always a quest for Love: a wild, untamed animal, always mysterious, and magnificently surprising when it comes to curl up on our knees. And if the Love-animal appears in many forms throughout a life, its fiercest form is that which resides within our intimate self.
