Choreography Fanny de Chaillé - Text Pierre Alferi
Concordan(s)e is a unique adventure, an encounter between a writer and a choreographer. According to the established principle, the two artists, who have never met before, observe each other and ask each other questions about what aroused their desire to create. Diving into their innermost creativity, a common and unique creation is presented, where the writer and choreographer reveal what has surprised them, as part of this process, as an original extension of their own world. The audience thus become witnesses to this experience, which illustrates the complicity established between the two artists at every turn.
Pierre Alferi versus Fanny de Chaillé.Pierre Alferi, a writer, makes a scene with Fanny de Chaillé, a choreographer. Theoretically, the roles are clearly distributed, but as her first love was sound poetry, she wants to be involved in the text. And, as he hates the theatre, he is able to read and attempt to direct her. From this dialogue of the deaf, the duo retains the pragmatic skeleton of a scene. Though they tell each other everything, it is through paraphrasing, or even under hypnosis. Once the actual truth comes out between the writer, in his tutu, and the bespectacled choreographer, things might well go very wrong.
