Pietra is celebrating this year, her 40th anniversary on stage with a new show the Dancing Women. She has written intimate and personal texts that reveal the secrets of a unique artist, the journey of an Etoile.
Marie-Claude Pietragalla and Julien Derouault, a couple in a minimalistic setting, showcases the connection between a man and a woman: the spark of their meeting, the overflowed thoughts… and time in motion that reshapes their destiny moment by moment.
Julien Derouault, an actor / dancer, crowns himself as King of one night, King of the night, and King of his life. He uses poetry and performance as a liberation of the senses. Everything becomes possible, including hope and laughter.
This show tells an intimate story of the female energy. This hybrid solo, mixing dance, theatre of body and object, takes us through the condition of women and the symbolism that it produces. Through multiple identities Marie-Claude Pietragalla evolves in different worlds, where she plays with the codes of theatre, from drama to comedy. The woman linked to the Sacred is sensitive to the reality of the mystery within herself.
This choreography, the most iconic work of the theatre of the body, revisits the period of imprisonment of the philosopher in the asylum of Charenton. It showcases two beautiful collaborations: Alain Delon who gives his voice to the performance and Laurent Garnier who made the musical score.
Ivresse showcases the soloist Julien Derouault, and the Gypsy band Arbat. The choreography combines and bring together these live performers with a playful interaction between dance, music and singing.
Reinvented by the dance, the choreography redeploys time in the way childhood memory resurfaces with sequences of intimate moments. From stolen moments of both dancer childhoods, screened on stage, the performance has a strong feel of universality... These memories could be ours.
The Théâtre du Corps Pietragalla-Derouault is funded with the support of the DRAC île-de-France, the île-de-France region and the city of Alfortville
