A piece by Aurélien Bory
Compagnie 111

“Enchanted and enchanting”
—La Croix (FR)

An enormous moveable wall splits and folds like a book. Five performers—three dancers, a soprano (Claire Lefilliâtre), and an actor—navigate this stunning monolith to create a shape-shifting tableau. Aurélien Bory’s playful, poetic work of physical theater is inspired by the life and work of writer-trickster Georges Perec, best known for his wordplay and droll wit. Using Perec’s Species of Spaces as a jumping-off point and diving into a physical riddle of arrivals and departures, presence and absence, Espæce destabilizes our expectations to moody and mischievous effect.
