Jan Fabre/Troubleyn


Attends, attends, attends (pour mon père)

Mousonturm Saal


Whether as a barking dog in As long as the world needs a warrior’s soul or a hysterically whimpering patient in History of Tears – Cédric Charron’s physical intensity and ability to transform himself in many ways has fascinated past and present audiences. As a dancer, he has left his mark on Jan Fabre’s work for more than fourteen years. The solo is based on a letter by Charron to his own father, in which he entreats his father to put himself in his position and finally accept his life as an artist. What begins as an intimate dialog of son and father hidden in dense fog, transforms into a bright and intense meditation about the relationships between generations, the passing of time and the possibility of a world in which desire and death unite.
