Éloge et défense de la routine

Generally, a lecture is a discourse about a specific subject, providing  an enlightenment of the question being dealt with. But when the members  of GRAND MAGASIN adopt this didactic format, it is highly likely that  the question being raised, and the answer provided, will not follow  parallel paths. Whether the theme is work, comprehension or routine, the  thought of Pascale Murtin and François Hiffler adopts twists and turns,  reflecting the meaning of the phrasings they use, whose mechanisms they  expose with jubilation. In the performative catalogue of GRAND MAGASIN,  action is structured like a language, and the activation of language  triggers a taking-up of action: in unison, as a canon, their voices and  bodies delve into the blind spots of language, overturn phrases, words,  commas, and play on all the effects of misunderstandings. Le Sentiment de compréhension and Éloge et défense de la routine  have in common their aesthetic of taking things literally and then  unliterally with, in their crosshairs, the same question: “What does  speaking mean?”

Centre national de la danse, Réalisation

Since 2001, the National Center for Dance (CND) has been making recordings of its shows and educational programming and has created resources from these filmed performances (interviews, danced conferences, meetings with artists, demonstrations, major lessons, symposia specialized, thematic arrangements, etc.).

Grand Magasin

« Ever since 1982 (when the GRAND  MAGASIN was created), we have aimed, in spite of an almost complete lack  of skills in theatre, dance and music, to produce the kind of shows we  would love to see.
They have achieved this and so we find them moving.
We’d like to think that others can share our enthusiasm. »

GRAND MAGASIN was founded by Pascale MURTIN & François HIFFLER.
 Murtin and Hiffler have produced together around twenty plays, shows  and performances, with the occasional help from their friends.
At the dawn of the 21st century, Bettina ATALA joined them and the three of them have been working in unison to produce few shows since 2001.
