Are you ready for an artistic snub against prejudices of all stripes?
With this new hybrid piece, Faizal Zeghoudi , director and choreographer, puts into words, movement and music, the question of racism on the stage of the venerable Paris Opera.
On the set, five performers including a multi-instrumentalist musician enter the skin and costume of exuberant characters. They take the punch line text by Rémi Bénichou , longtime collaborator of Faizal Zeghoudi.
The words are punchy, the humor stripping, the bodies engaged, capable of moving from song to text, from dance to theater.
In this jubilant ceremony, Faizal Zeghoudi fights against well-thought and reactivates, in his humanist and full of derision, a crucial debate.
Faizal Zeghoudi's latest creation is a slow rise in awareness of the racism in our societies. An unstoppable demonstration through humor and irony. We've never seen that! "On n'a jamais vu une danseuse étoile noire à l'Opéra de Paris" is a slow rise in awareness of racism. Slow, like an echo to the director's long reflection on the subject for years. In fact, he succeeded. He is not where one would expect him with such a title and such a subject. It is much further. He is everywhere. Where it hurts, and where you must not let go. Where it is good to laugh too. Because yes, racism, banishment, exclusion, domination are serious. But you don't have to be serious to talk about it. A little lightness does not interfere with understanding. And this is where this long-term work meets the public with mad energy and great intelligence.
