La Chute based on a Albert Camus book

November 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

La Chute (the Fall) based on a Albert Camus book

 

Witness to the traumatizing sight of a young woman throwing herself off a bridge in Paris, Jean-Baptiste Clamence confesses to a stranger in a bar how his inaction and passivity in that tragic moment continue to haunt him. He desperately tries to purge himself of his past faults and acts as “judge-penitent” of his own condition. In a choreographed dialogue, a dancer incarnates the ghostly female presence and other characters in the story. This drama and dance adaptation of fictional work La Chute (1956) by Albert Camus, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature, brings to life and gives shape to the themes of guilt, self-esteem, freedom, and responsibility.

 

Adaptation and mise-en-scène by André Nerman, Choregraphy by Nicola Ayoub. Performed by Nicola Ayoub and André Nerman
