TONIA SCHILLING COMPANY, solo, ritual-performance with dinner


return to productions               next

«Au Seuil du prochain Songe» is about the threshold and the emotional tension linked to its crossing. With introversion and detachment, Tonia Schilling explores, in this solo, the fragility of movement and wonder on the permeability of time and space.

She questions also the "threshold", the opposing timelessness of an artistic creation to the reality experienced by the audience. Seeking to break this obstacle, Tonia Schilling meets the spectator and invites them to share a dinner with her in the last part of the play, creating a ritual dimension.
