  • What would become of our world if angels could no longer fly? Raphaëlle Boitel develops a singular language at the crossroads of dance, cinema, circus and theatre. A language that is invented from the subtle relationships between beings, whether real or imaginary. His third creation, La Chute des Anges, invites spectators to a poetic, highly aesthetic and moving journey.

    We are immersed in a universe in chiaroscuro, populated by extraordinary characters. Survivors of a troubled world, a group of men and women walk between heaven and earth… Are they angels descended on earth? Men in search of a better world?

    In this tragi-comic fiction, the performers express themselves with virtuosity throughout the paintings, flitting from a Chinese mast to an aerial beam, alternating balancing and aerobatic. Bodies, looks and their particular expressions are like reflections of the beauty and complexity of the human being. What if nothing is irrevocable? This fiction combined with the future takes a look at the fragility of equilibria and the vital link that unites man and nature. But it also evokes the inner strength that man has to change things thanks to the love and beauty of letting go.

    "I summon all the emotions, the virtuosity, the contortion, the connection between the interpreters, in a metaphorical writing where every detail counts and is expressed to the fingertips. Each of my projects is a step in a global project to create a language of movement. Language that I hope to be a vector of reflection, wonder and emotion for the viewer." Raphaëlle Boitel.
