Asteroids rain - Marcus Møller Bitsch / www.marcusmb.com
This piece explores the figure of the rebel – men and women with the energy and insurrectionary courage
to take a stand against injustice, moral pressure and the current status quo.
The rebel is an unusual figure, viewed as one who breaks with continuity and evokes the new; s/he will
therefore be our guide on an “epic” journey featuring the chance encounter of four men.
These four men are led, by circumstance, to bear their bodies and souls. Four performers, four brothers,
four strangers sharing the stage, involved in a deconstruction of the story of their fate, a contest
between truth and invention, autobiography and fiction.
The project will be written in collaboration with playwright Guillaume Poix, whose most recent play,
Straight, was published by Editions Théâtrales. Poix will help to interweave the various narrative
The original musical score, by Ibrahim Maalouf, will also link the lost connections and support the narrative
with notes of violence and tenderness.
Brûlent nos coeurs insoumis (Burn, rebellious hearts)
This piece features a group of scenes consisting of fragments and different points of view on a subjective
story about contemporary life, in which Christian and François Ben Aïm investigate fraternity and
rebellion. It is a choral, composite work, like a kaleidoscope, that veers from construction to deconstruction
and examines how our fate is determined and our wild attempts to evade it.
