The Senseless Community

Short form created in 2019

In response to ALL IN JEST, Christian and François Ben Aïm have imagined a short form directly inspired by the play, which can be performed outside the theater and in any type of space.

This impromptu is the fruit of a twofold desire: to continually expand the territory of dance to new audiences, and to maintain the playfulness and themes that underlie the play, the play of the unpredictable, the relationship to the moment, and the constant adaptation to the environment.

As with ALL IN JEST, the choreographers explore the burlesque register in this artistic work where the unusual is combined with the undisciplined, proposing a daring and salutary step aside. The writing around the trio explores notions of letting go and the physical qualities that characterize them.

Thanks to the physical availability of the performers and the subtle balance of its writing, The Senseless Community has won over new members of the ALL IN JEST community of the absurd.

This reflection has its origins in the sketch presented to the Geste(s) group, at which the choreographers become the 2020 winners.
