A la douleur que j’ai
is presented at Usine C

An instinct for beauty? An instinct for pain? In this piece, choreographer Virginie Brunelle raises a toast to raw emotion with bitter poetry that questions the unfinished, the incomplete – what might remain between two people – offering this sustained action frozen in time like a memory, an aching pain. A mark, a link, a point of reference that is both timeless and of a specific time, the piece casts a gaze at the group, the family and the self. In a contemporary society nourished by this dangerous substance, Virginie Brunelle proves that pain can also be an emotional bridge, a source for encounters between the six performers and the audience, an experience that leaves no one unscathed.
