Jérémie Niel invites Catherine Gaudet into a living room— much as Jean-Pierre Ronfard did with Robert Gravel so freely, long ago. Jérémie and Catherine stare intently at each other, FACE-A-FACE.

These artists’ lives, forever marked by the quest for the inaccessible, stare each other down. Choreographer and director, diving deep into the eyes of the fool standing opposite, search for a way to name beauty, fissures, love, chaos…and, ultimately, everything they have spent their lives seeking, from studio to studio, alley to alley, room to room.

Artistic director, creation, and stage manager : Jérémie Niel
