BRUT provokes dramatic encounters between our bodies, bodies with their pecularities and particular skills, allowing us to go far into expression and storytelling.
Words as a concrete and defining frame do not always translate all the complexity of sensations, conflicts, desires and mysteries.
Word and language of the involved bodies, emotions and unified technical gestures will express themselves simultaneously to different degrees.
Contradiction, contrast, the entirety of existance, of being.
Communication, no matter by which means, within a gesture, a mouvement, a look is a simple basis of sharing.
Made from old scraps of skin and bone, BRUT is a physical journey through emotions. Wether it is circus, theater or dance, we are looking for a tool of expression which allows us to feel at ease in what makes us alike and gather.
With BRUT we are questioning
the human being's take-offs and wrecks,
the simplicity and uncluttered scenography,
the poetry in tragedy and the little gratings in lightness,
the sincerity and visceral resonance.
It is about
letting the spectator have space to make up his own story all along opening fields of inspiration,
being requiring in a soft madness,
questioning oneself's about tenderness in determination,
finding a popular dimension.
