Unidentified Living Object

Age: 8+

Duration: 60 ´

Occasional verbal content in French will be translated at the end of the performance.

“TRUE” is the true story of an encounter: that of Étienne Manceau, a trained juggler, and a mysterious partner, Candide. At eye level, in an astonishing stage arrangement, each spectator is equipped with an audio headset and observes this improbable duo through a small skylight. So familiar and so different, these two observe each other, eye each other, seek each other out or ignore each other in interactions of variable geometry, leaving a lot of room for instinct, impulse and time.

10 years after the creation of his first solo “Vu”, Etienne Manceau offers here a living and moving show in the broad sense of the term, where the ability to manage the unexpected in live offers power to the unique time of the performance.

Unidentified living object, TRUE, ingeniously disrupts traditional public relations. The show takes place in a circular, singular and immersive stage system. Ultra proximity and power of details, visual, auditory, olfactory. Everything is so close and really true, but… is it real?

Predictable and unpredictable, interior and exterior, complexity and simplicity, tenderness and violence, freedom and confinement, convention and transgression, VRAI raises a timeless questioning of human nature and our relationship with the living.
