What if failure opened a new path ? Four versatile and talented artists defy a prodigious obstacle. On the same stage, expressive music and dance invite all ages on a playful exploration of resilience, on a rebound.
How does one bounce back ? When we miss, when we fall, when we fail? Two musicians with string instruments and two dancers with acrobatic bodies are faced with an immense and immutable cube. They grip on to it and fall, persevere and try, in other manners. Is the unexpected an impasse or a bifurcation ? By intertwining choreographic and musical writing, the quartet harmonises movement, voice, breath and strings to compose an acrobatic melody, a dance with a singular tone with vocal exercises and beat-box. These artists that are fatally vowed to succeed take on failure, loss and fragility as sources of creativity. What if the beauty of the gesture resided not in its perfection but in its intention? Looking for the musicality of a moving body, the choreographer Thomas Guerry and the composer Camille Rocailleux wrote this internationally successful burlesque and sensitive piece with four hands. Bounce ! is a joyous invitation to bounce back.
