To see the stage of the Jardin de la Vierge as a space of experimentation: such is the idea behind Vive le sujet! Tentatives, which invites authors and artists to pick one or more companions and form multidisciplinary courts.

un ensemble (morceaux choisis) // Anna Massoni

Anna Massoni, dancer and choreographer in long-term residence at the Centre National de la Danse in Pantin, invites Ola Maciejewska, a Polish artist known for her work on Loïe Fuller’s serpentine dance. Together they rehearse movement scores, producing gestures over and over until their very origins are forgotten. Having now become autonomous, those strangely familiar gestures make up the common grammar the two artists will use to toy with both the significant and the trivial. 

Le Siège de Mossoul - Une épopée contemporaine // Félix Jousserand

With Le Siège de Mossoul, Félix Jousserand adapts his burning and poetic book for the stage: like a troubadour recounting events in a chanson de geste, the slam poet evokes the battle between the Iraqi-Western coalition and ISIS. Accompanied by Bruno Ducret on the cello, he lends this narrative in alexandrines an epic dimension, augmented by interviews with photojournalist Patrick Chauvel.
