Cie Bivouac“Le Rêve d’Erica”
An opera singer sings a nursery rhyme to open le rêve d’Erica.
A bird dances and announces upcoming events, leading Erica to an imaginary world where she is invited to explore his heart.
The innocente girl confronts different characters: provocative and disturbing monsters, a devilish Shoemaker, an idyllic but hypothetical lover and her fearful double. These strange appearances are pretexts to create situations pushing Erica to explore her body and emotions. Throughout her journey, her explosive feelings are symbolised by red objects dominating her dangerously, until she finally learns to control them.
This enlightening journey is also a metaphor for her passage into adulthood: the heroine pursues her quest for happiness. The dream is both a preparation for reality and an invitation to live our passions and instinctive feelings.
The story is inspired by the film The Red Shoes by Michael Powell, who himself was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale.
