A young orphan is about to tell a tale that pursues her, that acts on her like a mirror, when she lets herself be caught up in her past. Show aimed at all audiences, Vilain! mixes the arts and speaks to us of a liberating renaissance.
Zoe is a young girl who does not know her parents. On the verge of reviving one of Andersen’s most beautiful tales (The Ugly Duckling, which reveals the misadventures of a baby swan who cannot find his place in the world because he believes he is a duckling), she finds himself in the middle of a storm. Abandoned, trying to find a refuge, she meets a friend whom she adopts for a few laughs. But her past blocks her. The tie. Until his metamorphosis.
Naughty! is the story of a rebound, of a resilience. Zoé gives herself a second birth. She remembers, sings and draws her memories. Along with the puzzles and obstacles in her existence, so many steps in her quest for identity. Focusing on words but also on images, Alexis Armengol’s show combines theater, music, painting and clowning. He creates an intergenerational theater that defends the imagination as a source of enrichment and individual construction.
