MOI, CORINNE DADAT

France | Theatre

Mohamed El Khatib

► 5 & 6 février – 20h15 | Durée 1h ► Manège / En français

 

Arising from a meeting between the author Mohamed El Khatib and Corinne Dadat, a housewife, this scenic poem combines drama and documentary. Moi, Corinne Dadat [I, Corinne Dadat] is a portrait of an “invisible” woman, whose experience, while not representative of the real lives of the “lumpenproletariat”, is nonetheless significant. With two bodies and two voices, the dancer Élodie Guezou and Corinne Dadat provide moments of life, witnessed by the abused language and bodies, from the working world, but also from the family and the domestic sphere. A personal story of the common people.  

The show brings out the toil and the strong presence of this 53-year-old woman, mother of four children, planted there in her green overall...” Le Monde
