We’re asking women – Romina Paula, Roser Montlló Guberna, and Brigitte Seth – to give us their version of happiness in two theatrical performances. In June this collective will open for the creation Dans la République du bonheur by Martin Crimp, directed by Marcial Di Fonzo Bo & Elise Vigier.

Coûte que coûte

Coûte que coûte is a warning.
It’s the prologue to a play in the making: ¡ Esmerate ! (do your best!).
A prologue that exposes the state of the world and asks questions about happiness. An endless prologue that loops continuously.
Two hosts/storytellers play on this duality until it becomes absurd. A conversation that is both spoken and danced, Coûte que coûte lies just before the main attraction, right between the stage and the audience, on the edge of failure.
Crazy times are imposing an unspeakable fate on so many people. Even the cleverest struggle and die in a world where austerity rules.
So is total happiness possible? What is happiness?
Does it have a color, special clothes, a dance? The happiness dance? Do we learn the moves or tempo to this dance?
The body speaks the unspeakable and expresses duality: rising and falling, tension and fainting, breathlessness and serenity, turmoil and immobility…
Using a repetitive movement with varied accents, the two dancers continuously herald hope, like the apocalypse, or the secrets of a fortunate change that are eventually revealed, behind the curtain, some day.
The Third God to the other two: “You must agree, the World is uninhabitable!”
The Good Person of Szechwan – Brecht

From 1999 to 2000, they collaborated on the Monteverdi trilogy under the musical direction of Jean-Claude Malgoire, and in 2001 they choreographed Madeleine aux pieds du Christ by Antonio Caldara, which was performed at l’Abbatiale during the Chaise-Dieu festival with musical direction by Arie Van Beck. In May 2007, under the musical direction of Jean-Claude Malgoire, they directed and choreographed Gluck’s Orfeo Ed Euridice.

Toujours après minuit has also put on numerous performances, collected under the generic name of Luna i Lotra Performing, in various contexts: seasonal presentations, shared soirées, festivals. It has also organized a performance Ball (already presented at the Comédie in Clermont-Ferrand, as well as in Strasbourg, Tours, Paris, Pantin, Alençon, Blois, etc.).

“Germán, who doesn’t know how to play the piano, wrote a song for us. It’s called Araucarias. His piano teacher told him he would have to learn to play it as if he hadn’t written it. I didn’t choose the theater either, and even less so the role of actor. But it’s the first thing I did in the theater, which brought me closer to it, and also the first thing I rejected. Does getting out of your comfort zone make you happy?
