Telling Stories

  • 2015

  • Performance

Seven protagonists, one room, a few everyday objects and a multitude of realities that could emerge from this. Before the eyes of the audience, the interrelationships and configurations constantly shift, revealing actors, objects, relationships, sound and images whose interplay seems to produce more than the sum of its parts - a hybrid of reality and fiction, space and body, presence and absence, the invisible and the concrete. A multitude of interpretative possibilities unfolds before the visitors, which elude concrete perception and direct classification and provide space for a multifaceted theatrical experience.

In his own choreographies as well as in those created with the artist trio MAMAZA, Fabrice Mazliah never ceases to amaze with the precision and subtle irony with which he invites the audience to participate in the thought processes on stage. For TELLING STORIES, Fabrice Mazliah and MAMAZA join forces with the dancers of the Michael Douglas Kollektiv.
