Easy Language:
The title Forme(s) de vie is French.
It means life-forms.
Imagine: Every movement is suddenly exhausting.
Two people with limited movement struggle with this.
They used to be professional boxer and dancer.
Three dancers play their prostheses.
Film scenes are also part of the play.
The performance is an experience: wonderful and delicate.

What gestures would you maintain if every movement became a challenge, a struggle that required your full attention? In Forme(s) de vies, two performers* with limited mobility, a former professional boxer and a female dancer, link up with their former movement practice. Three dancers become their human prostheses and part of a collective and intimate choreography.

Who is leading whom here? Questions of trust, consent and self-determination are negotiated – sometimes as a tangible feat of strength, sometimes seemingly weightless. Compagnie Shonen combines live performance and film to create an event of overwhelming tenderness in an otherwise highly individualized, competitive and technologized present.
