Le Tir Sacré
at the Theaterhaus Stuttgart

Le Tir sacré" will open the French Weeks at the Theaterhaus on March 12. The piece by French choreographer Marine Colard (50 min.) is a duet that plays with the musicality of sports commentary. The piece combines choreographic and textual challenges and explores the connections between gesture and sports commentary. What is the relationship between the athlete's performance and the journalist's sometimes dramatic and exuberant commentary? "Le Tir Sacré" is an oscillation between the meticulous deconstruction of body lines and the decontextualization of words. How far will this duo dare to go in this escalation for ever more performance, for ever more emotion?

Dance: Marine Colard, Esse Vanderbruggen
Commentaries: Werner Kolk

Admission free.
Participants of the workshops are invited to the performance on 12.3. 19:30 at Theaterhaus Stuttgart.
