La Causeuse / The Loveseat

Presented as part of Bristol Festival of Puppetry.

Without a word, a young woman guides us through darkly comic and poignant dialogues as she revisits the memories of a sordid and doomed romance. As wandering hands seduce and frolic, she dances and wrestles with her inner demons.

La Causeuse is a brilliant virtuosic piece of physical theatre at the crossroads of dance, mime, physical and object theatre. It focuses on visual performance and choreographic installation, placing body and movement at the centre of Olivia Lathuillière’s artistic approach.

“A very fine show, full of invention, sadness and a rich, self-deprecating humour, expressed in powerful physical comedy.”   – THE SCOTSMAN
