Recorded at the CND 22 May 2015



Fanny de Chaillé uses different reliefs and choreographs vertigo and imbalance in her new piece, CHUT. Inspired by romantic images and the great figures of burlesque and drawing on the famous work by the German painter Caspar David Friedrich, Wanderer above the Sea of Fog, this new opus questions human fragility. Part of a visual installation by the artist and set designer Nadia Lauro, CHUT also challenges the illusion of theatre in the name of total fidelity to the real and a taste for the literal in things.
