Mirages - Boreal souls

Against the backdrop of a polar landscape, Mirages – Les  âmes boréales immerses the audience in the heart of the icy expanses of  the Great North. The piece leads us to drift towards lands as real as  they are fantasized, and questions as much as it makes us dream.

This contemporary tale plays on illusion and uses visual,  choreographic, sonic and sensory means to arouse surprise and  fascination. Sound and video have an important place, and associated  with the movement, reveal the dreamlike and magic of this landscape, and  transfigure the icy nature that conditions the mind and transforms the  body.

Imprint and fusion, the piece is interested in the capacity of  contagion that nature has on the man, to better question by mirror  effect the imprint that the man leaves on the earth.

Ben Aïm, Christian & François

For more than twenty years, Christian and François BEN AÏM have been building a work rich of poetry and high standards, fraternal bond and singularity.

At the end of a multidisciplinary training combining dance, physical theater and circus, each one follows his path as a performer, then the two brothers meet to create À l’abri du regard des hommes, avant d’aller mourir ailleurs, a hybrid dance-theater piece which marks the beginning of their collaboration in 1997. Twenty pieces will follow which anchor their fieldwork as much as they travel internationally. They draw their inspiration from literary, musical and pictorial sources, and intimately mixing artistic disciplines on the stage : En plein coeur (2006), Valse (2010), The Ogresse on archives and her dog (2011), Lightness of Storms (2014), Burn, rebellious hearts (2017), Mirages — boreal souls (2018), Arise (2019), JESTS (2021).

Marked by an uncompromising energy, summoning the performer to an intimate relationship with movement, the dance of the BEN AÏM brothers offers, beyond a speech, an experience, a "crossing" that the dancer performs in front of our eyes, that he lives each time with the sincerity of a full and entire presence.

With this demanding writing comes an art of composition which gives birth to the stage an imagination borrowing from dreams, from the marvelous of the tale and from invisible realities. Through a subtle effect of empathy, the audience enters an unstable world, where everything is the object of poetic questioning - a world to be experienced together.
