Just who is this Joseph, alone on stage with a laptop computer? Even he doesn’t know, and the whole piece will seek to crack the enigma: who’s the man with the biblical name, fighting his image? With the look of a high-tech western, this solo is for young audiences born in the digital age.
It all starts seriously enough: the man and his image, which invades the entire stage. But very soon, it all kicks off: his image starts being duplicated and distorted via the webcam; his face even becomes extra-terrestrial, not to mention the unexpected coup de théâtre at the end. We witness a kind of duel between the dancer on stage and his screen image – an image that sometimes takes control to create weird and burlesque situations. Young spectators totally ‘get’ the idea that these tech tools, which they know well – their computer’s webcam and special e!ects –, are a creative source that they can use to invent other lives and bodies... and embark on a search for self.
