A theatrical and choreographic performance for the public space.
The Nest
Growing wings!

They are nine young people, still very frail.
And it’s already quite an adventure…
Getting their heads out of the nest,
discovering the world with their eyes,
growing up and getting their wings ready before taking the plunge!
Who knows what will happen when you jump into the void?
Looking up to the sky, but with their feet firmly on the ground…
What happens when the chick leaves the nest?
What does it mean to be young today?

The stage space is circular, arranged around a giant nest. The audience is set up at 180° around what looks like a circus ring with a diameter of 15 metres.

Le Nid (the nest) depicts the passage from childhood to the first steps of adulthood, outside a protective family nest. Created in 2016, this show and The Flight form a diptych entitled Immortals. The two parts are independent and complementary.

Immortals – The Nest is a continuation of a reflection on humans and their living conditions. The central question addressed in our previous show Beautiful Escape – Emergency Exit was: “What is ageing?

Echoing this question, we explored this other question:

What does it mean to be young today?

The oversized nest in which our litter of chicks grows up offered us the ideal metaphor for addressing this issue. This is where the first discoveries are made, the first clumsy steps, the first emotions, the discovery of oneself in contact with the small circle of close friends. But one day, the space that made us feel secure is no longer enough, and we want to go and see elsewhere, to open up our horizons. The main issue is then to feel ready to leave this nest…

Who knows what will be discovered next?
