L’HUMANITÉ / 15 november 2010


Here we go boys and girls in the rowdy market!

Fauves (Wild beasts) gives prominence to the astounding energy radiating from the youth collectively experienced. On a screen on the back of the stage orders appear at the right time such as: “Get some perspective”, little by little the sentences become more and more commanding until this one: “We invite you to use one third of your available brain function for Google”. What emerges, is the description of a subjection and soft constraint attempt of a freely agreed apathy where the animal energy of young people, a lively, dangerous and threatening force against order would be slyly hindered by invisible hands. Michel Schweizer makes a political work in every sense by asking the neophyte bodies to pretend to give in in order to claim as much freedom as possible. Thus Fauves (Wild beasts), once again, shows that the common motion can accurately reflect the current state of society.
