theatredessilence1   Casus DélireLe Théâtre des Silences
Artistic direction : Gwenola Lefeuvre
Country : Bretagne ( France)

The "Théâtre des Silences" thinks the world is way too loud, that it should rather keep quiet or find some kind of new languages. We offer a theatre of gestures and images where the body draws the space and tells the echo of life, in a made-up language that everyone would understand without even learning it. Narrating with mime is forgetting spoken words and letting go of the political, polemical and the media : leaving it up to the senses
