Following the creation of Acta est fabula at the Théâtre National de la Danse de Chaillot in 2018, Yuval Pick immediately felt the impact it would have on youth, through its wacky aspect and the freedom it emanates. He then decided to create a shorter version dedicated to young audiences. Accompanied by his five dancers, he creates a piece on the theme of unison: A manifesto of body, movement and voice, thus giving birth to a new hymn that brings us together. The sound creation, bouncing between popular songs, snippets of sound and group movements draw a rhythmic and colorful piece. With Lil'Acta, Yuval Pick takes us into an exhilarating choreographic universe, mixing humor, expressiveness and a touch of madness to create a common fable.
