The readiness is all

A group meets up because they have something to celebrate. The stakes seem high. They hesitate: which clothes should they wear, how fancy should they dress? What should be the first word, what gesture will they start with? Just when they have dressed up for the occasion and are happy to be together, uncertainties rear their heads. The atmosphere changes in an instant.

The feeling they want to evoke seems fragile and hard to grasp. So the group sets out in search. They sing and drink incessantly in honour of what still connects them, to the life one must cling onto at all costs. To the awakening of an era. Words are found and overlap as if they want to reveal the goal of the ceremony. Is it a tragedy they collectively want to escape from? Bit by bit, the irrational seeps through and the situation cascades further. The music takes leaps and sidesteps. The ceremony gets out of hand. Mythical figures from a long-gone past appear and take a seat, dreamy places and worlds appear, beings are reincarnated.

New signals, new questions – “how do we handle this?!” – arise ...


Raoul Collectif celebrates its 15th anniversary with you and us! KVS welcomes their latest creation Une cérémonie, while you can rediscover their first two creations Le signal du promeneur and Rumeur et petit jours at our neighbours Théâtre National. There’s a whole bunch of other festivities in the pipeline, so keep an eye on our website for more details.
