Singspiele

Dozens of characters make an appearance in this fascinating one-man show by the fearless and celebrated French choreographer Maguy Marin.

Using simple props, actor David Mambouch skilfully creates a moving gallery of portraits in this intriguing, austere performance. His own identity is concealed behind a succession of printed images of faces – some are familiar, others are not. Adopting and shedding personas as often as his costumes, he switches from one identity to another, expertly adjusting his gestures and posture to each. Male and female, old and young, celebrities and strangers: his precisely timed movements describe his characters without uttering a single word.

Singspiele is a show about listening, about hearing the stories held behind mute faces and acknowledging our primal need to be recognised.

Marin, Maguy

Born in Toulouse, dancer and choreographer Maguy Marin studied classical ballet at the Toulouse dance academy. She then joined the Strasbourg Dance Company and later Mudra, Maurice Béjart’s multi-disciplinary school in Brussels. In 1978, with Daniel Ambash, she founded the Ballet-Théâtre de l’Arche, which was to become the Compagnie Maguy Marin in 1984. The Centre Chorégraphique National de Créteil et du Val-de-Marne followed in 1985: its unremitting artistic work spread worldwide.
In 1987, Marin’s encounter with musician-composer Denis Mariotte was the starting point of a decisive partnership, which broadened the scope of experimentation.
Then in 1998, a new place to settle in, for a new Centre Chorégraphique National, in Rillieux-la-Pape: a place as a we in time and space to strengthen one’s ability to foster those diagonal forces resisting oblivion (H. Arendt).
The year 2011 saw a remodelling of the framework in which the company’s reflection and achievements unfold. After the intensity of the Rillieux-la-Pape years, there emerged a need for a new phase in Toulouse from 2012.
In January, 2015, Maguy Marin and the company find the region of Lyon. An installation to ramdam to Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon, who engages the deployment of a new ambitious project: RAMDAM, un centre d’art.
