The story A homeless person discovers a street corner that he chooses as a temporary refuge. 2 barriers simbolise the doors of his universe, a bridge transforms into a boat and a sculpture becomes his traveling companion... This show is built as a visuel poem, its rhythm marked by the snow that falls from time to time... a little... a little more... until the storm. At the end, everything turns white except the red of the umbrella, like a poppy in a field of snow... a sign of hope. The search I have the feeling that all the artistic influences that have nourished me until now, have come together to form a specific and unique language at the service of emotions and the relationship with the public. Concentrating on the impulse of the gesture, of the emotion, more than the gesture itself, I wish to arrive at a choreographic language of great simplicity that shows us the inner life of the character, the state that he goes through and that he creates with the public. With "Poetical Refugee" I am looking for the shortest route between the soul and the gesture. What's most important to me in this new work is, through my character, to find a state that invites time to stand still and in this way to give the gesture meaning. My character of a homeless person, a metaphor of vulnerability, dreams that his world becomes meaningful and beautiful once again, and this takes me to my fundamental artistic and human challenge: to find authenticity and humility, to share simple emotions and true moments of theatrical magic.
