  • Evoking political philosopher Thomas Hobbes’ reasoning that human nature consists of little more than the vacillation between our desire for power and the power of fear, LA VIE ATTEND explores secrets and strategy in a group of five men. They are teammates, instigators and witnesses. They are victors and mourners. At times together and other times alone, they fight for attention and affection, from their audience and from each other.

    A chimerical, visceral, and vulnerable work that oscillates between highly physical dance and theatre, LA VIE ATTEND transposes Hobbes’ social contract theory to the theatre through a unique and destabilising choreographic writing, and thus to the contract into which the contemporary audience member and the interpreter enter together, hope and fear in hand, neither of whom certain of who holds the power in the room.
