Papier multiforme et
Papier comestible

Papier Multiforme et Papier Comestible is one performance inside of which two performances co-habit. Two performances take place on a same stage at the same time; next to each other like in two neighboring living rooms. On one side, magic and choreography unfold around a diner table at which spectators sit. On the other side, a library invites spectators to read. At times, the two performances spill into each other influencing their rhythm. As neighbors of a perceptible adjacent performance, spectators research the impertinent absence and exercise of ubiquity, of being elsewhere, where they are not.

How to facilitate dissensus within performance? How to become interested by one’s neighbor? How to authorize our differences? to make space for heterogeneity? How to tame what might at first appear like a threat, like darkness, like other beings, like the weird neighbor?
