Mixing dance, song and story, Le bain proposes to open a way to the relationship of children (and their parents) to the representation of bodies in the history of art.
On the left, a “Diane at her bath” from the Fontainebleau School. On the right, a “Suzanna at her bath”, painted by Tintoretto. Starting from these two 16th century paintings, Gaëlle Bourges has created a fable for young audiences simply called “The Bath”. On stage, three dancers-singers, three modern young women, play with dolls and their toilet articles to tell the numerous stories related with these two famous paintings. Gaëlle Bourges expresses the richness of her descriptive point of view on the painted scenes and mixes it up with personal anecdotes, sharp analysis, associations of ideas and images. The layers of time overlap to show the evolution in arts and life of body and nude representation.
Gaëlle Bourges will present “Ce que tu vois” from 20 to 24 March.
