THÉÂTRES / summer 2016


Primitifs (Primitive)


Even if the show is completely and quite intelligently set, it gives the impression to invent itself live. The performers are disturbingly at ease. We do not know anymore what is fiction or reality and we indulge in the fool’s game that does not actually fool anyone but takes us into territories of heavy thinking with an invigorating humour. And if “Primitifs” speaks mainly to our mind, it doesn’t overlook other senses, and its finale where the magnetic intensity of dancer Aragorn Boulanger is revealed, represents an unexpected emotional climax that touches on the spiritual dimension of our humanity.
