In Palermo, in the footsteps of Pina  Bausch, Aurélien Bory has combined theater, dance and visual art  featuring a vast 15th century fresco.

Aurélien Bory is offering a tribute to  the capital of the island of Sicily, a land with a history of different  civilizations and cultures.  There he discovered The Triumph of Death,  an extraordinary fresco measuring approximately 6 meters (20 feet)  square and which he adopted for the stage backdrop, challenging the very  forces of life.  Actors and dancers enact contemporary dramas where  even the younger generation must confront the prospect of death;  such  is the experience of migrants driven to travel across the sea, and the  experience of a woman battling disease. Invisibili creates a  dialogue, moving from a tableau verging on dance to a macabre circle  dance, a dialogue with the 34 characters from the fresco, endowing  visible shape and sade on death and time, both being devoid of shape and  shade.

Bory, Aurélien

Aurélien Bory was born in Colmar in 1972. His studies in physics in Strasbourg led him to the field of architectural acoustics.  He then ended his scientific curriculum in 1995.  He settled in Toulouse where he joined the creative studio at the Lido, the Circus Arts Centre. In 1998, he played in Theatre Tattoo's "L'Odyssée" directed by Mladen Materic.  In 2000 he founded Compagnie 111 with actor Olivier Alenda.  He then conceived and began the six-year-long space trilogy project, in collaboration with Phil Soltanoff, including "IJK", "Plan B" and "Plus ou moins l'infini" (More or less, Infinity).
In 2003 he directed Pierre Rigal in his first solo creation Erection, the stem of their ungoing collaboration, which also originated their second work together: Arrêts de Jeu premiered in 2006. Merging various other fields, he created "Taoub" in 2004 in Tangier with twelve moroccan acrobats, this very show will launch the international career of the Groupe acrobatique de Tanger (Tangier Acrobatic Group).  In 2008 Aurélien was the recipient of the "Créateur sans frontières" (Creator without borders)/ Radio France trophy for his international creations, notably "Les sept planches de la ruse" (The seven boards of skill) created in China in 2007 with performers from Dalian. In 2008 and 2009, he conceived two creations: "Questcequetudeviens?", a portrait of a woman, and "Sans Objet", a piece for an industrial robot. His creations include different artistic fields : theatre, circus, dance, visual arts, music...  His genre-crossing approach is inscribed within the question of space and is explored through his distinctive scenography. In 2016, he created "ESPÆCE" based on the French writer Georges Perec 's work, at the Festival d'Avignon (France).
