Every theatre situation entails a random temporary community that follows it own rules: strangers meet up to sit more or less passively in the dark while watching others doing things in the light. In his latest work, French choreographer Xavier Le Roy has created three short pieces that try to displace the dividing lines between the public and the actors, fiction and reality, object and subject.

Each of the pieces – they could be entitled: the conference, the spectacle, and the concert – hinge on the loss, disappearance, or death of an essential protagonist. The words and actions are motivated by the need to reconstruct with the remaining elements rather than to set out and find or replace what’s missing. The actors and the public are subsequently engaged in mourning and conversations whose transformations try to turn melancholy, loss, or death into driving forces. These movements yield fictions that produce strange and unsettling situations.
