Lulu(s)

Thirteen actors bring to life the tragic and insignificant story of Lulu. Surrounded by men desperate to exist, Lulu metamorphoses, taking on the identities they need from her. She is a projection of their fantasies and each takes hold of her, until she breaks free. Powerless, we watch a sordid parade where Lulu repeatedly seeks to become a new woman for the man she marries, and each seeks to possess her totally. These thousand faces project the unreal and nightmarish dimension of a disturbing, poetic and burlesque play. The text is the starting point of our ideas, each expressing its own fantasies and madness. Bodies are vehicles for dreams and the power of desire.

Fâcheux et fâcheux

One-hour production in two parts, with the central theme of the “search for happiness and obstacles to it”. Three starting points for productions were discussed in rehearsals: the text, the space and the imagination of the actors.
