À TABLE !
Three consuls from three different countries gather around a restaurant table for a meeting. They have to reach an agreement on a shared infrastructure project. Since none of them speaks the others’ language, they have to find other ways to communicate, using all available materials to illustrate the plans they are unable to figure out on paper. As the meeting progresses, they gradually slip back into childhood, decreasing in seriousness and becoming more and more playful. As the table turns into a playground, they transform it into an extraordinary and most unexpected sculpture.
This nod to the universe of filmmaker Jacques Tati was born from the meeting of three artists from different generations and backgrounds. The result is a zany, poetic visual universe combined with a sensitive, playful dramatic composition, rythmical precision and emotional accuracy. It provides the perfect opportunity to shed light on all the challenges of our attempts to communicate, using games to initiate relationships.
Under the artistic direction of Serge Marois, the productions of L’Arrière Scène, founded in 1976, have always favoured metaphor and poetic expression. Travelling off the beaten path, the company is respectful of its young audiences’ creativity, offering environments that bring together different artistic languages. L’Arrière Scène uses images, movement and words to encourage children and young people to engage openly with the world, encouraging their emotional connection to and interest in the arts.
