For this creation, the Dikie Istorii company was granted an off-site residency in the specialized medical-social establishments of the Fondation OVE, as well as at Les Subsistances in 2019.
How do bodies react when they feel oppressed? In a society in crisis, ¡No Pasarán! expresses the vital and necessary impulse to protest and assert oneself. The issue of uprising is the focal point of this new creation, in which the actors are pushed to outdo themselves on stage. Through group action, a demonstration, their bodies show the power that comes from being part of a group. The revolt then becomes an organic and occasionally risky dance. Motivated by the desire to constitute a single breath, the rebellious actors metamorphose into a source of instinctive energy. An anarchistic storm!
“Of what is revolt composed? Of nothing and of everything. Of an electricity disengaged, little by little, of a flame suddenly darting forth, of a wandering force, of a passing breath. This breath encounters heads which speak, brains which dream, souls which suffer, passions which burn, wretchedness which howls, and bears them away.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
