La Scabreuse

From 28 to 31 March 2013

Circus / Dance


Lard is a very strange trip. A circus-arts poem in which pigs and people frolic in magnificent confusion. A dance and theatre piece full of snout and silk, burlesque and mass, glitter, bowing and scraping, distinction, etc. Nathan Israël and Volodia Lesluin, accompanied by Paola Rizza, are skilled in juggling, dance, clowning, the tightrope, etc. They have created a farce full of oddities about humans and pigs, the beautiful and the ugly, the clean and the dirty, power and otherness.

Nathan and Volodia have worked together for several years on several projects, as dancers in Mars 2056 by Brigitte Pougeoise and as authors of La mourre.
