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 has been written in collaboration with playwright Guillaume Poix, whose most recent play, Straight, was published by Editions Théâtrales. Poix helps to interweave the various narrative threads.
The original musical score, by Ibrahim Maalouf, also links the lost connections and support the narrative with notes of violence and tenderness.
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.
