L’ogresse des archives et son chien – Beyond reality, a contemporary fable.
[…] A good dose of fantasy helps us talk about our fears, our ghosts, and the violence of a world in which we construct our own identity. In this show, we get the chance to meet some of the imaginary characters that populated our childhood. But the choreographers cross the line between fantasy and reality by continually shifting and disrupting what we already know. There are diversions, transformations, reimaginings…cut-and-pastes that become crazily absurd to say the least, but that resonate with reality and even the here and now. In the end, we navigate consciously between reality and fantasy, as we are transported into an unusual new imaginary world. A dozen or so performers – dancers, circus artists and musicians – take part in this entertaining mashup, characterised by the same lively, poetic and often physical style of dance that the company has been known for since its debut.
