Tales, legends, myths, anecdotes, intimate memories fill pages of his travel diary day after day. He offers simply to share his taste and love for these stories. To take us away to an unlikely dream world, to an impossible reality. To cross the planet by means of stories. Journeys in place lead by associations, by moods, by the atmosphere.
Balanced between written material and oral improvisation, Abbi Patrix unfurls his stories, giving them a new context each time, always in the present instant, always interacting with the audience, bringing the diversity of his repertoire to our ears…
Norwegian fairy tales, African myths, Chinese fantasy and Indian wisdom share an awareness to the world’s diversity, it’s complexity, it’s wish for stories in order to understand, amaze, discover. Between the Eastern sun and the Western moon, you will come across trolls, djinns, dragons, kings and princesses, ministers, salesmen and thieves, as well as frogs, snakes, turtles, monkeys, ravens and owls….
… without ever forgetting that these stories speak about us more than anything else!
Abbi Patrix has been exploring the art of storytelling for thirty years with the organization she founded, Compagnie du Cercle. Working either as a solo performer or with other artists, he has a taste for mixing the spoken word with other disciplines such as dance, music, and mime. His work is at the crossroads of theatre, music, and movement, enriched by multidisciplinary material, on a permanent quest for new ways and voices to enrich the form of storytelling. Abbi uses both personal and contemporary forms, which he constructs using different sources: traditional stories, life stories, diaries, his own memories, and literary texts.
IMPORTANT. The event will be in english.
