Play with the repertory

*This internship is intended to transmit and testify to the living repertoire of the Theatre of Movement from 1975 to today, its evolution over time, and the archives of a body in permanent research in the Arts of Mime and gesture.

This internship will invite participants to go through three different stages:

– The learning of gestural scores by Claire Heggen from emblematic plays from the Theatre of the Movement chosen according to their theme and among Les Mutants, Ombre Claire, Im/mobile, Equilibre instable, Encore une heure si courte, Tant que la tête est sur le cou, etc.

This learning will take place by placing the plays in the history of the movement’s theatre and the historical context of their creation. Analysis of the piece: history of its creation, its specific dramaturgy, its aesthetics. Score played live by Claire Heggen, View of the video of the show, as well as some of the traces of the notes taken at the time.

– The interpretation of these scores. Chosen according to their theme, it will be made from different points of view: musicality of the movement (rhythm, intensity, causalities, unpredictability,) body states, metaphorical forms and images of the body, relation to the object, play with gravity, lexicon used, reference to Etienne Decroux’s body mime, etc…

– Play with the repertory, appropriate partitions (memorize, incorporate technically) to create a second form in continuity or dissent. Divert them, move them, multiply them, by quotations, traces, ways of doing. From scores, improvisations, composition and interpretation, individual, duo or collective.
