Extra Life: unique drama about reunion, trauma, strong feelings, perception and imagination 

In French, surtitles in English, Czech

At the end of a night spent partying, a sister and a brother reunite. Twenty years ago, when they were still children, they were united by a fusional link that was to be torn apart by a dramatic event. Now they have the opportunity to reopen this old trauma together, to face it head on and perhaps come out stronger in the end.

In Extra Life, Gisèle Vienne pursues her investigations into systems of perception. By developing and unfurling the experience of this life-changing moment, this opening-up of the senses, the choreographer invents a form in which the different strata of the present experience come into contact: past, present, anticipated future, memory construction, and the imagination. An extremely dense choreographic piece, Extra Life was devised via the articulation of propositions from the performers themselves, with the music by Caterina Barbieri, sound design by Adrien Michel and lighting by Yves Godin.

In order to formulate the perceptive hierarchies, Gisèle Vienne makes use of a system of collages, developed in conjunction with the performers Katia Petrowick, Adèle Haenel and Theo Livesey. We are confronted with a stage language of a unique kind, in which the sense-led experiences nourish possibilities for the thought and spoken word.
