Twenty short stories to be told at night before praying
twenty entangled tableaux for a sacred comedy
where the body plays with appearances
and approaches absurdity reciting a rosary of learned gestures
Twenty six years later, Juste Ciel – the breakthrough performance that became the foundation for the company’s body of research – is back.
It’s the occasion to revisit a topic that’s more relevant than ever: Catholicism’s influence on our behaviour, and to rediscover the choreography through of a young performer, Julia Arbey, who takes over the seminal role which Nicole Mossoux created.
