Au Café Des Nonchalants // Milàn Galy and Thibault Michel
June 2023 creation / 30-40 minutes / all audiences / for public spaces
Here are two jugglers, two simple and carefree beings, languishing at passing time and at passers-by hurrying. they watch as amused spectators the world that surrounds them and it's timing, playing with the contrast of rhythm separating them from their environment.
To resist the friction of these time distortions and social absurdities around them, they chose their attitude : nonchalance.
The naive curiosity of these fragile beings brings them to move with an open body, ahead of a terrifying meeting with life and it's rhythm.
They invade public space and time, armed with their juggling language, highly physical and danced, they share emotions and derision.
It's through a burlesque and crazy dance, serving their acting and their objects, that the unexpected meets routine, that feats find their way into everyday life, that amusement arises from nothing.
Jugglers of the rhythms of life, dancers of small details, they propose a tender look on the hidden tragic comedy of our daily life.
