Presentation

  • Grown-Ups is the story of a generation: that of adults now turning forty and looking back on their childhood and teenage years. On the stage for this adventure, three adult actors are each accompanied by a child and a teenager, for a total of three trios. Discussions and dance reveal their visions and their worlds, in which plans and relationships of scale can be seen as games, as systems that might allow us to understand equality differently. Three presences in time that react to and complete one another. If for choreographer Fanny de Chaillé Grown-Ups is the continuation of a work started with writer Pierre Alferi on individuals and their status, it is also the show where what matters most is the poetry of bodies reconnecting. How to build our identities as adults, without forgetting the children and teenagers we once were? “Everything here is layers and repercussions, and whether it is textual or choreographic, each and every score was written by the adult to be passed on to the child then to the teenager, through a system of resonance.” The stage is a mountain whose geological layers reveal those stages of life: failures, confrontations, joys, successes. To grow up is to confront those layers, those superposed slices of emotion and discourse, to understand where our bodies are situated.

     

    Fanny de Chaillé
    Fanny de Chaillé likes to separate the text from movement, to allow the two modes of communication to rediscover each other and work within the context of that separation. After studying aesthetics at the Sorbonne, she worked with Daniel Larrieu at the Centre chorégraphique national in Tours as well as with Matthieu Doze and Rachid Ouramdane, and performed under the direction of Gwenaël Morin. She regularly takes part in projects by visual artists such as Thomas Hirschhorn and Pierre Huyghe. Since 1995, she has created her own installations and performances, including the recent Mmeellooddyy Nneellssoonn, a musical duet created for the Albums series at the Théâtre de la cité internationale in Paris where she was associated artist for three years, or Je suis un metteur en scène japonais (I Am a Japanese Director), based on Thomas Bernhard's Minetti (2011) and Passage à l'acte (Acting Out), co-created with visual artist Philippe Ramette. Her collaboration with writer Pierre Alferi started with COLOC (2012), followed by the duet Répète (Repeat, 2014). Grown-Ups, presented at the 71st edition of the Festival d'Avignon, is a continuation of that collaboration, and questions the status of the adult and the different layers of reality that make up a person. She is currently the artist associated to the Espace Malraux, Sce?ne nationale de Chambéry et de la Savoie.

     

    Pierre Alferi
    Pierre Alferi studied philosophy at the École Normale Supérieure de la rue d'Ulm. In the 1990s, he published books of poetry and two novels, Fmn and Le Cinéma des familles (Family Cinema). He founded Revue de littérature générale with Olivier Cadiot in 1995, hoping to bring back theoretical debates about literature. Since 1999 he has directed films in which the written word travels through time and through the image, which have led to exhibitions and screenings. He has created hybrid performances and sound landscapes (En Micronésie, 2005), has drawn his own picture books (Intime, 2013), and has published three more novels, Les Jumelles (The Twins), Après vous (After You), and Kiwi (2012). His collaboration with Fanny de Chaillé has led him to write for the stage and perform his own text for the duet Répète in 2014. He teaches literature at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
