A piece by Aurélien Bory
Compagnie 111

“The subject of this book is not the void exactly, but rather what there is round about or inside it.”
—Georges Perec

An enormous moveable wall splits and folds like a book. Five performers—three dancers, a soprano (Claire Lefilliâtre), and an acrobat—navigate this imposing monolith to create a shapeshifting tableau. Aurélien Bory’s intrepid 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 stretches the void of the stage and destabilizes our expectations to moody and mischievous effect.
