After having offered us one of the most rejoicing evenings of last season with Franito, the actor Patrice Thibaud is coming back to Chaillot with a creation on paradise, that is devilishly exciting.
One has to admit that Patrice Thibaud has the art to spark our desires. Indeed, how can one not be tempted by a cast as hybrid as it is impeccable, bringing together amongst others the choreographer and dancer Fran Espinosa, applauded in Franito and Don Quichotte du Trocadéro, the actor Olivier Saladin, cult performer of the Deschiens of Jérôme Deschamps and Macha Makeïeff, and of course Patrice Thibaud himself ? How can one not be seduced by an intimate yet universal theme, mirror of our aspirations to happiness? The stage will be a “sort of purgatory where we will broach upon our life, our joys, our sorrows, our regrets, our quest to summon our conscience and to attempt to reach ecstasy, or not”, announced the author. It plans to be a burlesque, tender and poetic show, as this talented dabbler knows only too well how to create. All that remains, as he underlines, is to “accept one’s death without disturbing the one of the others”. For one thing is certain: we will all go to paradise !
