An ode to JOY, both poetic and oceanic, through live painting, dancing and sea shanties
A Chemins errants and Theatre Motus production, in cocreation with Emmanuelle Calvé
A collection of the sung heritage buried in the memory of the old souls and musicians of Saint-Pierre-et Miquelon ...
Weeks of creation in the Magdalen Islands, steeped in insularity and sensuality...
And two eager and captivating artists who offer a performance of live painting and a capela sea shanties!
Promising? No! Lucious!!!
Echoing crest is a multidisciplinary and bold work, which is the result of a fruitful collaboration between choreographer Emmanuelle Calvé, Théâtre Motus and Les Chemins errants. The work proposes to bring the visual arts to the stage. In a visual poem that borders on performance, it's a small praise for JOY! Yes, yes, joy! This elusive feeling that makes the heart shudder and unties the body. Joy, with its light dress, its brashness, its bare feet and the charm of sea-tanned skin!
In an island world that tastes like salty air and sea breeze, two women of the sea display a real small art gallery against the backdrop of a sea trip. Punctuated by movement, nuggets of poetry and a revisited repertoire of sailors' songs, their large frescoes painted live evoke the sea: its movement, its breathing, its storms and its lulls, like an allegory both sweet and impassioned of the interior landscapes that inhabit them.
