Cie 32 novembre changes our perceptions of reality through six magic tableaux that update the genre. Everything is there in plain sight on the stage: objects, bodies, sound and light shows composed live. Like alchemists, they extract the magical essence from these raw materials and ordinary objects. Completing each other, passionate magicians and illusionists Maxime Delforges and Jérôme Helfenstein play on their twinship and dexterity, accompanied by four actor/accomplices. Together they create sensitive, ephemeral scenes to freeze time, breathe life into souls, transfer identities, transcend matter, and suspend bodies.
Decidedly contemporary, their approach updates their art’s codes while preserving the mystery specific to magic—and thus maintain the enchantment.
“Men with one thousand hands, what you make believe is more real than reality, which is a dream . . . . Your lies enchant us more than our poor truth.” Jean Cocteau
