A little piece pulls itself out of a tangle of ropes, leaves the intertwined pile and starts to take on a life of its own, going off in search of other pieces.
Through their games and their disputes, images of daily life, holidays and dreams appear before our eyes. Together they suddenly form characters that come briefly to life just to disappear or transform itself in the blink of an eye.
In the pared-down scenes, made up of lines drawn by the ropes, family life and human relations are dealt here with tenderness and humor.
‘Bout à bout’ is a story full of poetry and light, for young and old alike.
For over 25 years, Marina Montefusco and her company have developed a theatre of powerful and dreamlike imagery whose preferred mediums are puppetry and animated forms. Their shows have been performed hundreds of times
