Kefar Nahum

To give life to objects to the point where their appetite to live starts to devour the manipulator herself.
A world of objects, objects made of nothing, collected haphazardly during tours, to which a soul is attributed, human desires and animal impulses. Incarnate, devour, incarnate, devour. They reiterate the supreme shambles that is humanity.
Power games and feudal bed rights, monstrous couplings, unnatural births, gratuitous violence, executions taking place in a cortege of incessant transfigurations from which even the puppeteer’s body will not escape — flesh and blood absorbed like any other materiel.
On stage there are two tables and two prime contractors.
She, half woman, half spider, manipulates a whole flow of monsters, all made up of jumble.
He, at the keyboard, gives them voice and a surrounding of sound.
We seek, in the symbiosis that takes place, to try and distinguish from where the gesture emanates and which of the two worlds, so closely fitting together, engenders the other.

Bonté, Patrick

After his studies in philosophy, humanities and dramatic interpretation, Patrick Bonté wrote many texts for theatre and cinema and directed numerous theatrical productions in Brussels, Antwerp and Quebec. His desire to explore themes related to the enigma of presence through the theatre has led him to explore the  invention  of  languages,  avoiding  textual  narration,  realism  and  psychology.  With  Nicole  Mossoux, whom he met in 1985, he shares the desire to “create images for the stage that have a particular sense, in which tension reigns, a tension tied to the contradictions that nourish it, and yet do not presume to bear a definite truth”. He is also artistic director of Les Brigittines (City of Brussels Contemporary Art Centre for Movement).

Mossoux, Nicole

Nicole Mossoux is a Belgian dancer and choreographer born in Brussels on 3 January 1956.

After studying at the Mudra school of Maurice Béjart, she created several solo pieces in 1978, became interested in psychoanalysis. And then, after meeting the playwright and director Patrick Bonté, she created the first choreography of a long, common and shared series, Juste Ciel (December 10, 1985), presented at the Plan K Refinery, directed By Frédéric Flamand.

A few years later, the two artists founded the Company Mossoux-Bonté, which never ceased to melt dance and theater in a single language, exploring the troubled areas of sensibility and the unconscious, in a strange familiarity to meet the spectator's imagination.
