In 2020 with the visionary Là the company Baro d’evel has demonstrated how acrobatics or the “new circus” can take the form of a mysterious, lyrical and deeply poetic manifestation: a universe made of matter, dust, music, voice and fragments of life. The roots of this universe can be easily traced in Mazùt, among the first performances of the duo Blaï Mateu Trias and Camille Decourtye, whose rearrangement is presented with a national premiere during REF21. A new fragile dream is suspended like a soap bubble in which time takes on the quality of a romantic duet (between interpreters Marlène Rosaing and Julien Cassiers) or a vision with a surrealist flavor that digs and unearths the animalistic essence of our being: a man and a woman, both heroes and prisoners, a wild horse and a singer, houses made of cardboard, skies and paper walls. Everything in Mazùt is made of matter, sensation and emotion, leading to a journey of searching for the self, a thrust into our more profound reality, but through the lens of magic.
