Théâtre : Dom Juan

Entertainment/recreation, Theatre, Various arts in Sainte-Maxime
  • Mixing theatre, dance, circus or video, David Bobée has accustomed us to his large format productions. Sometimes turning the stage into a giant pool, sometimes covering it with sand to lay an incredible carnival, the new director of the Théâtre du Nord also likes to take on the challenge of confronting unusual characters. He is likely to prove to us, once again, that the excess has found, with him, its just measure....

    A prolific artist committed to all forms of discrimination, David Bobée excels in decolonizing the arts by producing sumptuous transdisciplinary and unifying shows. To bring down the statue of the Commander was enough to seduce him, he whose entire work is crossed by the question of authority, and who conceives the theatre only committed against any form of domination. Each scene of Dom Juan, he says, represents something he has always fought against: misogyny, class superiority or hypocrisy. All the more reason to dig deep into the depths of this jewel of the great repertoire to find resonances with our time - which sees, in particular, intolerance returning in force. Rather than trivially debunking the figure of the hero, the director chose to entrust this role of admirable villain to Radouan Leflahi, subtle actor, capable of embodying all its complexity. In a setting of monumental statues lying on the ground, like a cemetery of fallen gods, the entire cast is in tune with this powerful, political, critical, and topical rereading of a masterpiece written more than 350 years ago, in a completely different context, that of absolute royalty.
