To build a deconstruction
All is about realities...
It's a story between two completely opposed musicians. Their countries, their cultures, their musical approaches, their dreams and their favorite dishes...
In a world that you cannot predict its future, how can a little Swiss artist manage to meet in real this reality? How can a Syrian artist integrate his past in his creations?
How can they judge their lives? How can they be sure that what they live is a reality and not an unreality?
We composed a piece which believe in this truth of difference, and try to highlight it by the different lives, sounds, images and moves...

Pourquoi Violette est devenue sorcière? (2021)
The show "Why did violet become a witch?" is performative /music theater creation that is both current and engaging. Directed and performed by 4 young creators, it mixes reality and fiction, humor, sarcasm, innocence and seriousness.
It includes pieces by Charlotte Torres and Yesid Fonseca, as well as creations by the collective. In the course of the episodes, between history and real facts, the performers put forward the inequalities between men and women of the past and the present. The use of archives, sounds and images brings to the show an interactive and modern aspect that reinforces its originality.Back to works

Tot ho recorde mentre vas estenent la roba.
Han passat anys, molts anys; han passat moltes coses.
