Théorie des prodiges

Theorie des Prodiges is at first the discovery of a 16th century manuscript listing miracles that occurred in ancient times. Formerly, a  magic thought was substituted for the gaps of knowledge, and a meaning  was given to phenomena unexplained by fantasy and interpretation. For  this new piece created in residence at the Maison de la Danse in Lyon, a  virtual narrator rubs dancers and a singer, against a backdrop of  projections of strange landscapes. The dance unfolds in the heart of a flood of surreal images and summons the marvelous with great inventiveness. With this creation, System Castafiore delivers a very simple message: "We need to dream and believe in wonders ...".

Biscuit, Karl

Composer and Director.

Associated with the movement of Northern European experimental music, he is one of the artists on the label "Crammed Discs". 
Close to members of the emerging young French dance movement in the 1980's, he wrote music for Philippe Decouflé (“Un Vague Café”), and Dominique Boivin ("Strada Fox").
 He studied choreographic composition with Alwin Nikolaïs, where he met Marcia Barcellos, with whom he founded Système Castafiore en 1989. The two have created 19 choreographic works together.

Barcellos, Marcia

Choreographer.

Born in Sao Paulo, she studied dance with Halina Biernacka, a soloist from the Warsaw Opera who emigrated to Brazil after the war. At 17, she had the opportunity to come to France to audition. In 1978, Alwin Nikolaïs asked her to participate in a summer workshop in Chartreuse-les-Avignons, at the end of which he encouraged her to study at the Centre National de Danse Contemporaine in Angers. There, as a member of a performing group chosen by the choreographer, she danced in works choreographed by Alwin Nikolaïs. After her training, she moved to Paris where she danced with Quentin Rouiller. In 1981, she co-founded, with a group of young artists (among them Dominique Rebaud, Alain Michon and Santiago Sempere), the collective Lolita, responsible for a number of creations—notably "Zoopsi Comédi"—which toured in Europe and abroad. In 1986, Marcia joined the group Tuxedomoon, as a singer, for the European tour of Holywars. In 1989, she founded Système Castafiore with Karl Biscuit. At the present, they have created 19 works together, including commissions from national ballet companies.
