Things to see

 

Rigal

This strange Bataille, with the attacks plotted by Pierre Rigal, blends circus movements with corporal percussion.

For the 2013 edition, the Avignon Festival and SACD invited Hassan Razak, specialist in corporal percussion and director of Onstap Company, to take part in the Sujet à Vif programme. Hassan brought in Pierre Rigal, director of dernière minute company. The two choreographers widened the circle to include Pierre Cartonnet, acrobat and actor, to develop Bataille, a 30-minute piece. Hassan Razak and Pierre Rigal decided to continue the artistic adventure beyond the festival. They created a long version of 60 minutes, in December 2013 at the hippodrome of Douai, for the Multipistes festival. The long version will be presented during the Lyon Dance Biennale at the Vénissieux Theatre.
Though they had never met before working together, Hassan Razak and Pierre Rigal, coming from very different backgrounds, joined their talents and mixed up the genres to create an offbeat piece at the interface of dance, theatre, circus, musical creation and performance art. Guided by Pierre Rigal, Hassan Razak and Pierre Cartonnet size each other up, provoke, punch and dodge each other, in gestures stylised to the point of absurdity, playing on the comical effects to better embrace the forces of life and violence. Georges Bataille, whose name inspired the title, can be felt in the shadows. He wrote, “I lost my faith in a burst of laughter” and “Everything was false, even my suffering. I started crying again and again: my sobbing made no sense.” This continual state of ambivalence is where the piece finds its shaky balance, between hope and disillusion.
