Rencontre avec les artistes : September 28th & October 5th after the show. Host :

In LA VIE ATTEND, five performers face the audience, tackling a delicate balancing act. They are teammates, enemies, victors and mourners, instigators and witnesses. All of their visceral and vulnerable contradictions, their pride and their shame, their hope and their fear, are laid out on the stage. Life as a game waiting to be played.

A theatrical work born of an intuitive and intellectual inspiration, seducing on the surface, physical and deceptively playful, LA VIE ATTEND deftly manipulates the deep primal tendencies we often avoid. Creative duo Emily Gualtieri and David Albert-Toth, the co-founders of Parts+Labour_Danse, kick off our Traces-Chorégraphes series with an illusory work, performed by five dancers who will no doubt win you over. It’s anyone’s game.
